Amarillo College To Celebrate 90 Years

Amarillo College is celebrating a milestone this year.

The college is gearing up for a year-long 90th-anniversary celebration taking place during the 2019-2020 academic year.

To help celebrate, there are several events that will be popping up that are currently in various stages of planning.

AC President Russell Lowery-Hart said “Amarillo College has evolved and flourished in so many phenomenal ways over its first 90 years,” “It’s a very great honor to serve on behalf of a community asset as truly vital as AC.

“As we strive with great optimism to position the College for future prosperity, and as our national reputation continues to thrive, we want to make sure to reflect on our storied past, and on the innumerable individuals to whom the College owes its roots, its trajectory, and its profound gratitude.”

86 students started at AC back on September 16, 1929, and now there are more than 10,000 students enrolled in classes at 6 different campuses in the panhandle.
