College Kicks Off 75th

Richard Marold

Lamar Community College’s 75th Anniversary Kick-off celebration occurred on Thursday, September 27th. With over 200 in attendance the event was marked with generous portions of history, recognition, prizes, food, music and socializing.

LCC President John Marrin started the night by reading two letters of recognition from US Senator Michael Bennett and US Representative Cory Gardner.

Members of Lamar Elks presented two donations to the college’s foundation, one for the LCC Rodeo team and another as an unrestricted gift. Net proceeds from the event will also benefit the LCC Foundation.

During dinner attendees heard insights on the 1930’s and 40’s from Richard Marold, in character as Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Marold was followed by Judy Arnold, a retired LCC history instructor, who gave a brief history of the college.

Many attendees won door prizes throughout the evening. And the Valley Jazz Orchestra ended the celebration with Big Band era music.

LCC would like to thank everyone who attended the event and took part in celebrating the college’s milestone.

In its 75 years of operation, LCC has grown to offer 39 degrees and 23 certificates of study for hundreds of students annually. In honor of the 75th anniversary, Lamar Community College will host additional events in the coming months, including a homecoming in conjunction with graduation activities this spring.
