History: St. Johns River Junior College was established as a public institution in 1958 to serve the counties of Clay, Putnam, and St. Johns. It was one of several public junior colleges founded in accordance with legislation enacted by the 1957 session of the Florida Legislature. Located in Palatka, the college was officially opened for organizational purposes on February 25, 1958. Dr. B. R. Tilley was appointed as the first president. Classes for the 1958-59 school year were conducted in the educational buildings of First Baptist Church of Palatka and 191 students began the fall semester of 1958. The church facilities included seven classrooms in the educational wing and a temporary library and administrative office in the two-story frame building behind the church. A biology laboratory was set up by city maintenance crews in the old Davis Tank Factory. In its second year of operation, the college moved to its new campus of 96 acres featuring small ponds stocked with fish, rustic bridges, numerous pine trees, and room enough to meet the needs of a rapidly increasing enrollment. At the end of the second year, the college graduated its first class of 22 students. During the first 10 years of operation, the college was responsible to the Board of Public Instruction of Putnam County and to the State Board of Education. A committee comprised of three citizens from each of the three counties served in an advisory capacity to the president of the college and to the School Board of Putnam County. In compliance with a legislative act, a District Board of Trustees was organized in 1968 as the governing body of the college. This board is composed of two members each from Clay and St. Johns counties and three members from Putnam County. When Collier-Blocker Junior College in Palatka closed in 1964, the college absorbed its operation and began offering classes at that facility in the fall of 1964. At the end of Term II, 1965, all classes were moved to the main campus. The Collier-Blocker plant reverted to Putnam County. The first president, Dr. Tilley, resigned his position in July 1965, and C. L. Overturf, Jr. was appointed interim president until Dr. Charles W. LaPradd was inaugurated as the second president on January 1, 1966. The last half of the decade saw a tremendous building program. Handsome architectural designs, functional and attractive renovations of existing buildings, and beautification of the SJRJC Palatka campus were all accomplished in major part by 1970. After six years of service, Dr. LaPradd resigned in April 1972, and Dr. Robert L. McLendon Jr., former vice-president and dean of academic affairs, was appointed president. The new administration focused attention on increasing the educational opportunities and expanding services to the community throughout the three counties of the district. In August of 1976, the Florida School of the Arts began full operation as a part of St. Johns River Junior College with a charter class of 51 students. The first state-supported professional arts school for high school and college students in Florida, the school has continued to grow as its curriculum has expanded. The Florida School of the Arts serves the entire state of Florida. In 1977, the college underwent two major changes. The official name became St. Johns River Community College and SJRCC opened its first branch campus in Orange Park, a community in northern Clay County. The Orange Park Campus is now located on College Drive in the Doctors Inlet area. Construction of permanent facilities on that site began in 1987 and the college began operating in the new facility in 1989. A student center and expanded learning resources center were constructed in 1997. In July 1986, the college opened its second branch campus, this time in St. Augustine in the Fullerwood School, a site made available by the St. Johns County School Board. After operating for more than nine years in the Fullerwood building, the St. Augustine faculty, staf

History: St. Johns River Junior College was established as a public institution in 1958 to serve the counties of Clay, Putnam, and St. Johns.
