Read About Stanly Community College in Newspaper Clippings Collection

Thanks to our new partner Stanly Community College, we now have newspaper clippings about the school from the 1974-1975 academic year to 2021. Many of the articles describe the activities and accomplishments of the Stanly Community College chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), a professional organization for students studying business.

A newspaper clipping from 1981 with a photograph of Stanly Community College students in the Phi Beta Lambda professional organization and Albemarle, N.C., community leaders. They are attending a ceremony celebrating the return of American citizens and diplomats after the Iran Hostage Crisis.

While several articles detail the impact that the SCC Phi Beta Lambda chapter had in the Albemarle community, a few connect the organization to a larger context. In 1981, for example, PBL students partnered with community leaders to hold a ceremony celebrating the safe return of United States citizens and diplomats after the Iran Hostage Crisis. The PBL president, vice president, historian, and treasurer were supported by Albemarle Mayor Carlton B. Holt and Tony Lowder, chairman of the Stanly County Board of Commissioners, along with several church leaders.

Most of the newspaper clippings come from The Stanly News & Press, a local paper of Stanly County.
