24-10-2022

(Worldkings.org) Established in 1947, George C. Wallace Community College, with campuses in Dothan and Eufaula, is one of the largest and oldest community colleges in Alabama. It is part of the Alabama Community College System.

George C. Wallace State Technical Trade School was established by the Alabama Regional Trade School Act of 1947. In 1955, the name of the institution was changed to George C. Wallace State Vocational Trade School, and on May 3, 1963, by decree of the Alabama State Legislature, the institution became George C. Wallace State Technical Junior College. In response to a recommendation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the technical school and junior college were united in 1969 to form south Alabama’s first comprehensive community college. The Commission on Colleges of SACS accredited George C. Wallace State Community College to award associate degrees and certificates in 1969, and accreditation was reaffirmed in 1973, 1984 and 1994. On November 12, 1996, the name of the Institution was changed to George C. Wallace Community College, and the College was reaffirmed for accreditation in 2002 and 2012.

Wallace Community College is one of the best trade schools in the US for teaching the skills many students will need if they plan on going to work immediately after graduation. Trade schools are known for teaching a variety of skills for several different industries. They do not focus on courses that are often used to flesh out other types of degree programs. Instead, the best technical colleges in the US center the bulk of their attention on the skills and talents the graduate will need to perform their duties once they enter the workforce.

Wallace Community College offers many different classes for students who are interested in learning the specific skills associated with their chosen trade. From cooking to welding, acting to daycare, students are able to choose a career path they will be happy with for many years to come. The college allows students to explore all of their options when it comes to developing a career where they can use both their hands as well as their minds.
