School Notes:

Randolph Community College began operation in 1962 as a joint city-county industrial education center under the direction of the Trades and Industrial Division, Department of Vocational Education. The North Carolina legislature in 1963 established a separate system of community colleges and the College became part of that system. Over the years, the College has operated under four names: 1962-1965, Randolph Industrial Education Center (RIEC); 1965-1979, Randolph Technical Institute (RTI); 1979-1988, Randolph Technical College (RTC); 1988-present, Randolph Community College (RCC). The Asheboro Campus includes nine major buildings. The original building, constructed in 1962 is now known as the Administration/Education Center. In addition to a centralized administrative service, this building contains many classrooms, labs and shops, as well as a 30,000-square-foot photography studio and Joblink. The J. W. "Willie" Plummer Vocational/Technical Center containing approximately 30,000 square feet, provides an automotive body shop, a building trades shop, electrical/electronics labs and houses the Hosiery Technology Center. A Student Services Center of 18,000 square feet houses a student lounge, Food Service, and office facilities for Student Services. A new 3,700-square-foot Campus Store sits adjacent to the Student Services Center connected by a covered walkway. The R. Alton Cox Learning Resources Center is a 27,000-square-foot facility which includes, among other things, the College library.
