Plaque Unveiled at CMCC's First Home
December 18, 2014
President Scott Knapp of Central Maine Community College (CMCC) and Tina Legere, president of Central Maine Medical Center, unveiled a commemorative plaque recently in the lobby of the medical office building at 287 Main Street in Lewiston.
This building, originally a Buick dealership, served as the first home of the College for two years. Known as the Androscoggin State Vocational Institute when it opened in September, 1964 to approximately 100 students, the College was renamed Central Maine Vocational Technical Institute in 1965. The College moved to its present location on Turner Street in Auburn in the fall of 1966. More than 3,100 students are now enrolled at CMCC in over 24 different programs.
