Celebrating 80 years as an instituion

This year, 2018, marks a significant milestone in the history of Pratt county and Pratt Community College. This year PCC will be celebrating the 80th anniversary of being an institution as well as marking 50 years since the dedication of our main campus and also the 30th annual scholarship auction.

September 6, 1938 Prat Junior College opened its doors as the 14th junior college created in Kansas. Pratt “Juco” welcomed 150 new students to their original campus located on 401 S Hamilton St.

Eighty years later we are proud to have served thousands of student’s on-campus, online, at our Winfield and Wichita learning centers and through High School concurrent enrollment.

Throughout this year PCC will be featuring important figures, alumnae, employees, and community members from our history who will share with us their stories about the past, present and future of the institution. Beginning in February and going through December PCC will feature a new person who will help us culminate 80 years of building futures. If you are interested in being featured or want to suggest someone to be featured you can contact Jessica Sanko at jessicas@prattcc.edu.

The 30th annual foundation scholarship auction, set for April 13 will be held on campus in the Dennis Lesh Sports Arena. Our theme is “Celebrate our Past and Build our Future”.
