- In 1967 an abandoned prison compound located near the Village of Union was purchased. Under the leadership of the State Rep. Roberts H. Jernigan, Jr., and with the support of Sen. J. J. "Monk" Harrington and Rep. Emmett Burden, funds to establish a two-year, vocational and technical training institution in Hertford County were provided by the North Carolina General Assembly. Originally called Roanoke-Chowan Technical Institute, the institution's name changed to Roanoke-Chowan Technical College in 1981 and to Roanoke-Chowan Community College in 1987. The 41-acre RCCC campus boasts five modern classroom buildings. Also, a seven-acre Arboretum/Environmental Science Outdoor Laboratory is part of the campus. It has been designated as a Project WILD Education Site by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission. The site is open to the public for self-guided tours and is used as part of curricular and continuing education classroom instruction. More than 20 curricular programs now are offered in which students can earn associate in arts degrees, associate in science degrees, associate in applied science degrees, and associate in general education degrees, as well as diplomas and certificates. The College also has taken greater strides to provide transfer opportunities for students to pursue higher-level degrees. Through the North Carolina Community College System, a formal transfer agreement has been established with the 16-member University of North Carolina System, as well as with a variety of private colleges.
