Eagle Scouts Paint Curbs

The next time you are walking the campus, take a moment to observe the new paint job on our street curbing. This new red paint was voluntarily provided by a Boy Scout troupe that did it as part of an Eagle Scout project. They did a great job.

Tobacco Free Task Force Begins Deliberations

In recent meetings of the College Assembly the issue of smoking on campus has come under discussion.
The College Assembly voted unanimously to investigate the concept of “tobacco free campus” and make recommendations for VVC. To ensure an open dialog on the issue, the Tobacco Free Campus Task Force has been assembled consisting of members from all constituent groups on campus. These faculty, staff, and students will be seeking input on the issue.

History on Display

It’s not the Smithsonian and it’s not the Library of Congress, but it sure has more information on the Victor Valley than any of the aforementioned institutions. It’s the VVC college library, and it is proudly calling attention to its wonderful collection of historical information as it relates to the Victor Valley area of the High Desert. The collection contains over 2,000 photograph, 100 oral histories, papers, newspaper articles and rare books about the area. This collection has been made possible through the considerable work of many people, but chief among them are Fran Elgin and Leo Lyman.
