We invite you to meet the man that started it all, President E. John Maier. Listen as the late Jim Lunt interviews President Maier and talks about how the college was started, who was involved, as well as brief overviews of other president’s tenures, and behind the scenes stories that can only be told by those who experienced them first hand.
E. John Maier – Peninsula College President from 1960 to 1975
The President’s Message
It is impossible to stand still: the choice is to slip backward or progress. Peninsula College shows no signs of standing still.
One aspect of our progress is apparent in our increasing enrollment: this year we had a thirty-six percent increase in day students over last year.
An even happier sign of our growth is visible in our new campus. This beautiful, seventy-five-acre wooded tract is ideally situated with the Strait of Juan de Fuca in the foreground and the Olympics in the background. Moving day was a momentous occasion for the students and faculty members.
Our next great occasion will be the dedication of the buildings when the second phase of construction is completed sometime next fall.
This yearbook is dedicated to the students of Peninsula College who have been so necessary and helpful to this progress. May you find that your association with this growing institution will be a help to your own growth and a cherished memory in days to come.
