School Notes:

Craven Community College is a public, two-year comprehensive community college located in beautiful and historic eastern North Carolina. Craven Community College is a 3,000-student, two-campus institution located in historic Craven County, North Carolina. We offer a wide range of curriculum, continuing education and basic skills programs. Our New Bern and Havelock campuses also are dynamic places where neighbors and visitors come together to learn, to share and to stay involved. The first Craven County adult education classes, funded through the Lenoir IEC, were held at Brinson Memorial School in 1961. Two of the first classes illustrated the workforce development focus of the IEC's: a blueprint reading course offered for the employees of Riverside Iron Works, and basic electronics course comprised primarily of employees from the local telephone company. From these humble roots, Craven Community College was born. In April 1971, the College moved into its new two-building campus on Racetrack Road with an enrollment of 350 curriculum students and 384 continuing education students. That December, the College received accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
