Lake County of Woodland Community College Invites the Public to its 50th Anniversary Celebration – 10.13.22

Lake County Campus of Woodland Community College (LCC) invites the community to join the celebration of its 50thanniversary. Located on 12.7 beautifully wooded acres, LCC has had many names over its 50-year history. What has remained consistent over LCC’s history is its commitment to providing Lake County citizens access to academic and career technical programs that meet the needs and expectations of the region’s economy.

Lake County Campus has offered courses to County residents since 1972. It started off offering a few courses at Konocti Harbor Inn, in Kelseyville under the name of Lake County Center of Yuba College. In 1974, classes moved to the current location in Clearlake and the first buildings were constructed.

The California Commission of Post-Secondary Education recognized “Lake County Campus” as a center in 1990. At the same time, the Board of Trustees voted to change the name to “Lake County Campus”. In 2000, the college was renamed again, this time to “Clear Lake Community College”. The college’s culinary program was launched the same year.

Under the instruction of the California Community College Chancellor’s office, in 2003 Yuba College District removed the word “college” from the campus’s name and it was renamed “Clear Lake Campus”.

In 2011, the campus held a groundbreaking ceremony that added 26,000 square feet to the facility. This expansion added a new student services center, library, a state-of-the-art kitchen and dining room for Aromas Restaurant, and new classrooms/labs for Biology, Chemistry and Early Childhood Education courses. The new facility was completed, and a dedication ceremony was held in 2012.

Under a district realignment, LCC became part of Woodland Community College in July 2016. Its current name, Lake County Campus of Woodland Community College, is a result of that realignment.

Festivities on October 13, 2022, are planned from noon until 5:00 p.m. The celebration will kick off at noon with lunch provided by vendors from the community. Campus tours will follow. Beginning at 3:30, a program will be offered that includes comments from special guests and alumni. Throughout the afternoon, visitors can expect culinary and pastry treats from LCC’s Aromas crew. LCC invites the entire community to join in the celebration.
