LCCC prides itself on creating a family atmosphere for students, and that family culture is represented through the generosity of the many families of LCCC over the past 55 years.
Leon Peters served as an LCCC trustee from 1967 to 1972 as a school board member for the Parkland School District, then from 1972 to 1986, representing the Allentown School District. Mr. Peters died Dec. 4, 2021 at the age of 90. We remember the impact he had on establishing the college and his continued role in the community over the decades since.
As the oldest community college in the Lehigh Valley, Lehigh Carbon Community College has impacted the lives of not just individuals, but entire families. Students become alumni, and their children make the same choice when it comes time to decide on an educational path after high school. For many families, all roads lead to LCCC.
