Approximately 750 photographs from Johnston Community College have recently been digitized and added to the website, thanks to our partnership with the school. Mostly from the 1970s and 1980s, the photographs include images of campus, students, and staff at the main Smithfield campus as well as the Four Oaks Howell Woods campus.

The photographs in this collection are diverse in subject matter, comprising everything from photos of the College’s first president, John Tart, to the College’s Truck Driver Training program, to photos of various buildings on campus throughout stages of their construction and renovation.

One of the most unique collections in this batch is the almost completely reproduced set of photos from the 1989 yearbook. This is particularly useful as it provides original colored photographs to compare against the black and white yearbook.
