PCC Releases Book Chronicling First 50 Years
WINTERVILLE—All year, PCC has held festivities in observance of its 50th Anniversary. As part of that celebration, the college released a book this month commemorating half a century of service to the community.
Titled, “A Resolve to Serve … Pitt Community College: Celebrating 50 Years of Academic Excellence,” the book was written by local historian Roger Kammerer. Its 258 pages chronicle PCC’s start in March 1961 as an industrial education center with fewer than 100 students on up to its current status as one of North Carolina’s largest community colleges with a curriculum enrollment of nearly 8,500.
Since its inception, PCC has remained true to its mission of serving the educational and workforce training needs of Pitt County and Eastern North Carolina. Through photographs and in-depth stories, “A Resolve to Serve” highlights the accomplishments, struggles and challenges that have made PCC what it is today.
For more details or to purchase a copy of “A Resolve to Serve” for $40, contact PCC’s Office of Institutional Advancement at (252) 493-7287.
