Two decades of yearbooks from newest partner Johnston Community College

The Practical Nurse Club in the 1972 edition of Retrospect

Yearbooks from Johnston Community College are now available on DigitalNC. These yearbooks date from 1972-1992 and follow the school’s shift in focus from a technical institute to a community college. Johnston Community College, first called Johnston County Technical Institute, was established in 1969 and became a community college in 1987.  JCC is located 30 miles east of Raleigh and offers a range of degrees and certificates in fields such as health science, business, and education.

The Retrospect yearbooks give a glimpse of student life at the school and document clubs, activities, events, and academic programs. The earlier yearbooks feature sports like basketball and cheerleading, and clubs like the Practical Nurse Club and the Business Club. Later yearbooks feature a greater range of activities including Floriculture Design Club, Art Club, and many more. This change reflects an increase in student body and growth in programmatic offerings through the years.
