By Ohlone College.
At its January 2016 meeting the Ohlone College Board of Trustees issued a resolution that kicks off the year of planning for Ohlone‘s 50th Anniversary celebration in 2017. Ohlone College was established as a result of a special election held in December 1965 when voters created the Fremont-Newark Junior College District (now known as the Ohlone Community College District).
The year 1966 was a year of planning for the College, hiring the president and faculty, and developing the curriculum in preparation for Ohlone College‘s opening semester in fall 1967. The year 2016 is also a year of planning for the many occasions that will take place during the year-long festivities in 2017. Both current and retired faculty, staff and administrators are involved on the planning committee for the events that will mark Ohlone‘s Golden year.
At the January meeting, the Board also recognized the anniversary of the first board meeting, held 50 years ago. These are the first of many memorable dates leading up to the 50th Anniversary year of 2017.
