Randolph's photography program celebrates 50th anniversary

Randolph Community College recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of its renowned Photographic Technology program with a Homecoming.

About 170 alumni of the photography program attended the event Sept. 7 and 8, which included tours of the newly renovated photo facility on the Asheboro Campus, photography seminars and a lecture by Nikon Ambassador Tamara Lackey. Alumni traveled from across North Carolina and as far away as Minnesota.

“For most graduates, this was the first time they were seeing the renovated studio space,” said Lorie L. McCroskey, RCC’s director of development and an alumna of the photography program. “We had students from almost every class — even the very first year — attend.”
