School Notes:

A member of the rapidly growing system of 58 community and technical colleges, Wayne Community College was established as Goldsboro Industrial Education Center on June 15, 1957. The original on-campus building was completed in November 1960, and until Fall 1962 all courses were taught in the evening, and all students were part-time. In the 1962-63 school year, the first full-time courses were offered leading to diplomas in automotive mechanics, electronics, drafting, and practical nursing. During the 1962-63 school year, Goldsboro I.E.C. had 47 students enrolled with eight faculty members. During 1963 through 1965 three extension units of Goldsboro I.E.C. were established in Morehead City, Kenansville, and Clinton; later to become Carteret, James Sprunt, and Sampson Community Colleges. In January 1964, Goldsboro I.E.C. became Wayne Technical Institute. Wayne Community College is located in Goldsboro at 3000 Wayne Memorial Drive. Seven modern buildings on a new campus contain more than 287,000 square feet of state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, and offices. In 1996 Wayne Community College completed a campus development project which had been underway for 22 years. Three phases of construction during this time have provided more than $30 million in new buildings on more than 165 acres of property. Wayne Community College is a member of the North Carolina Community College system. Located in Goldsboro, the college serves Wayne and adjoining counties. WCC offers classes on base that transfer to four-year institutions, as well as those that lead to an Associate of Applied Science degree.
