South Piedmont Community College Catalog 2020-2021 cover.

Anson Community College began as the Ansonville Industrial Education Center in 1962. After the appointment of a Board of Trustees by the Board of Education and Anson County Commissioners in 1967, the Center became the Anson Technical Institute. Twelve years later in 1979, the name was again changed to Anson Technical College in order to better reflect the offerings of the school. The name of the college was changed for the last time to Anson Community College in 1987 before consolidating with the Union Technical Education Center. 

On August 3, 1999 the South Piedmont Community College was created from the consolidation of Anson Community College and Union Technical Education Center to better serve Anson as well as Union County residents. The college today continues to grow and expand its operations, but still strives to maintain providing hands-on experience as well as one-on-one instruction to its students.
