Enterprise State Community College celebrated its Founder’s Day on April 17.
The day is set aside to bring together the students and faculty in celebration of the school’s founding in 1963, when it was known as Enterprise State Junior College.
“Our institution was founded by people who love this community and cared enough to go the extra mile and do the things it took to really start this college,” said ESCC President Matt Rodgers. “For our students, it’s a great day for them to take a peek back in time, through our history and really appreciate our past as well as a beautiful day on campus.”
This year’s Founder’s Day celebration featured multiple inflatables, tug-of-war, music, corn hole and catered food.
“It’s a time of togetherness and a time to remember ESCC here at the end of the school year, especially for our sophomores who will transferring or graduating and going out into the career field,” said ESCC Coordinator of Student Programs Jennifer Olsen. “Our students look forward to the event every year.”
