The Lakewood Historical Society’s next program is on Tuesday, August 20th at 7 pm at St Mary’s Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 10630 Gravelly Lake Drive. Dr John Walstrum, current President of Clover Park Technical College, will do a presentation on the history of the college and plans for the future. The program is open and free to the public. Refreshments will be served.
The current site of the Lakewood campus has experienced several iterations over the past 100 years. The racetrack, aviation facility, U.S. Navy depot, CPSD’s adult vocational institute, and now the college, has served this community well. And, the stage has been set, with new programs and services and plans for a bachelor’s degree program, to continue to provide an educated workforce for the South Sound region and beyond.
