Introduction 



INTRODUCTION 

The history of the students of the Junior College of Broward County to 1968, Broward Junior 
College to 1975, and Broward Community College to 1998 provides a diversified kaleidoscope of 
ideas, thoughts and views of the students and how they interacted with concerned faculty, 
support staff and administrators who provided direction and leadership. The perspectives and 
interpretations of how the students dealt with their campus life, student organizations and 
personnel needs. There was never a moment when the students failed to comprehend, analyze 
and express themselves. 

The life of the students as it changed from the 1960's to 1998 reflects everything from national 
issues to local advertising. Each decade had its own high and low points, but in each case the 
students tried various opinions on the public and their peers. The alternatives were fascinating as 
the institution provided a laboratory experiment to allow the students to try different methods. 
Their approaches are worth studying as the students changed the life of the students to meet 
daily needs and societal factors. 

The critical thinking that the students exhibited proved they were in partnership with the college to 
accomplish more than academics, athletics, cultural diversity and social development. Their 
changing perspectives ranged from "sharing and caring" to asking "what is in it for me?" Their 
social and community welfare efforts highlighted each decade, the difference was the delivery 
systems. 

The Junior College of Broward College was linked with the Broward County School Board. 
Broward Junior College created a variety of sources for college parallel, professional or technical 
development. Then Broward Community College showed everything from life rings of retention to 
the flexibility necessary for future burdens or opportunities. The institution has provided a true 



traffic control center for Broward County to suit needs from Camp BCC pre teens to the Speakers 
Bureau seminars in retirement condominiums. 

The leadership demonstrated by the various administrations established directions in each 
decade. The conceptualization of everything from new programs to remedial assistance served 
the community with a wide range of options. All of these different approaches were vital to meet 
a very different environment as Broward County moved demographically and required economic 
concerns as change occurred. 



The multi campus institution provided a quasi home for many underprepared traditional high 
school students to returning traumatized adult learners seeking both training and employment. 
The advisement and counseling aspects could be found from Students Affairs to minority 
mentoring. The warmth experienced by those students gave them a comfort zone, a campus 
home despite the commuter image. It was the administrator, faculty or staff as individuals who 
made retention far more personable. 

The international flavor where travel abroad or influx of students from over 150 nations made 
Broward Community College, the place to be. Never were so many countries attracted to a 2 
year institution. There was also ethnicity constructed in the fiber of our college that allowed 
"cultural diversity" to infiltrate every aspect and level. The best part of this collection is the 
students, faculty, staff and administration. Their ideas, plans and work are highlighted in 16 
topics in a chronological manner. By no means is this a total or complete collection. The interest 
was to enlighten the points that made the institution change while affording all participants past, 
present, and in the future to add additional components. This is a living narrative of where we 
were why we needed to change, and how we managed to take advantage of so many 
opportunities. 



There are almost 83 volumes of student newspapers, yearbooks and scrapbooks that provided 
this manuscript with the detailed highlights. These will be stored in the Broward Community 
College Central Campus Library as the basis for archival history. It will never end as the story 
lives with the arrival of every new student, the activity of every campus event, and the 
achievements of each organizations or college program. A 

This is a chronological index to campus life, student organizations and the results. Whether 
positive or negative the results have caused change. In the decades that have passed the 
foundation of our institution has always been the people involved. Now records of their 
challenges to accomplishments will allow those who follow to build on what we did.

ACKNOWLEGEMENTS 

It required almost 19 months to acquire the various materials donated to Broward Community 
College. From newspapers to individual organization scrapbooks, the various offices and 
individuals who assisted in this project were tremendous in their efforts to contribute to our 
history. 

All three campuses newspaper offices were the starting point during the summer of 1996. Jerry 
Elam was the key figure for the overall consolidated newspaper collection. His student editors 
continue in his very large footsteps. Ann Chishom his administrative assistant provided so much 
detail from Polaris files on North Campus. Pat Ellingham assisted with the efforts to revive New 
Horizons from South Campus. Max Hall's foresight in the late 1970's provided me with Venetian 
Crier to Phoenix materials of the 1960's and 1970's. So, the fourth estate provided over 26 
volumes of extremely valuable student perspectives in the writing of the decades. 

Next came the three campus Student Activities Offices. Here was everything from Orientation 
flyers to F-Troop scrapbooks. The most valuable collection were the 21 display books located in 
a sealed room in Central Campus, Building 11 that contained the only copies of 1960's and 
1970's copies of Intramural Handbooks, Student Survival Guides, Movie Brochures, Orientation 
detailed maps and systems of campus programs, and those materials that were presented to 
students for 19 years of Student Life programming. Former F-Troop Captain and current 
Hollywood elementary school teacher Mary Waters had to refurbish several due to climate 
damage. Student Life Administrative Assistant Eleanor Myers was especially helpful in the 
identification of many archival works. 

Former Broward Junior College graduate Penny Mclsaacs who served Student Activities for 12 
years on all 3 campus location as well as program director of Camp BCC had been a very active 
member of BJC Greek system and Intramurals donated many books, banners -and memorabilia. 



Currently, Penny Mclsaacs serves BCC as the Director of Collegewide Student Program and 
Services. She will be in charge of the materials and how they can be utilized to show the current 
college family what occurred so the future will be better for all who come to Broward Community 
College. 

As to the manuscript the typing, revisions and development would not have been possible without 
the assistance of Leith Mazzochi who serves as the secretary for Central Campus Social 
Sciences. The work of the organization was on going for 18 months and Leith donated hundreds 
of hours to this cause. 

It was the students in the quest to acquire an education that really provided the thoughts, words 
and decades that inspired this collection. Without their constant presence, efforts to be all they 
culd be, and the challenges that they provided to the faculty, staff or administration there would 
be no History of the Perspectives of Students at the Junior College of Broward Conty or Broward 
Community College, 1960 to 1998 . 

This book is dedicated to all those faculty members, support staff and college administrators who 
donated the countless hours of volunteer time and personal resources to give our students every 
chance.

PROBLEMS (Challenges) 

BJC Race Relations according to student, Robert Jackson had Negro students feeling unease in all white 
classes for first time. The fact that 50% of Negroes preferred BJC over all Negro colleges did not stop Negroes 
from sitting together as only 3% of population at JCBC. 

Rick Barnard felt there was a lack of friction for the campus was not affected by socio-economic upheavals or 
crusades. 

Student Julie Poole regarded the overcrowded parking a factor that would bring approval of the President's 
Council on Physical Fitness because of daily hikes. Julius Debroski, the campus policeman said many parking 
problems can be solved with student cooperation as 300 spaces in west parking lot were never used for 
students would rather park in violation than park in the back. The parking situation is a case study in confusion. 
The safety hazards were the walking students and numerous holes. A "Rough Road Ahead" was suppose to 
apply to the class work at a college, not the school parking lot. Parking tickets were responded to at the 
business office in 48 hours and most $5.00 fines were dismissed with a warning. The automatic fines were 
given for no decal, speeding, driving on walkway or reckless driving. 

Chris Murphy, a student, stated that beauty was reflected in many things, but not by the appearance of our 
campus. The wind blows and the sand becomes a torment to everyone. All the buildings with the exception of 
the Administration Building were eye sores. JCBC reluctance to pay for landscaping as current landscaping 
costs must come from profits from the book store and student center vending machines according to Dr. Harvey 
Oates, Dean of Administration. Any club or organization that wanted to donate trees or shrubs should see Mr. 
Neil Crispo. 

Jeanne Cooney, Vice Chairman of Young Republicans supported SGA Candidates, Greene and Swanson for 
officers to led the SGA. Cooney criticized the newspaper Venetian Crier for their criticisms of candidates so the

Junior collegians are poorly prepared as junior colleges are just too easy as students need a year of

Athletics - 
intercollegiate 



ATHLETICS, INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 

The Junior College of Broward County developed an Athletic Program at Stranahan High School in the early 
1960's in both basketball and baseball, not exactly gender equity but a woman's golf and tennis team was added 
to offset the existing men's teams. It took a great deal of effort to get the School Board to approve Intercollegiate 
Athletics with the original intention that only Broward County students would be taken as athletes at JCBC. 

1960 to 1963 was a difficult time to secure coaches for JCBC athletic programs. High school coaches had to take 
pay cuts to approximately .35 cents an hour to take over these duties of JCBC coaches. The junior college went 
to junior high schools for the staff. Rex Brumley and R.L. Landers and other early coaches secured to start an 
intercollegiate program at JCBC. Harry Cruz, the Stranahan High School Athletic Director, was the most 
beneficial factor for the first five years of athletics at the JCBC providing both practice time, game time, and 
facilities to be shared with his high school teams. 

The search for coaches continued with the first major coach to change from Fort Lauderdale high school to the 
JCBC was Leroy Wheat in 1964-65 who agreed to take over the baseball program that was about to move to an 
on-campus field. Women's tennis and golf were already at the school, but courts and golf courses was used at 
other locations as the campus lacked those physical facilities. 

1965 was the best year for JCBC teams as both the men's basketball and men's baseball made it to the State 
Junior College Tournament. The women's tennis and golf teams were nationally recognized and rated. School 
spirit had to be greatly developed and pushed by administrators, faculty members, the Venetian Crier, Student 
Government, the Service Clubs and the Athletic staff. JCBC students were in a commuter mode for after leaving 
campus they did not to return for any events except for a couple of large dances or the Lyceum concerts put on 
every year. 

Miami Dade the largest rival in JCBC's history provided the most excitement. Indian River and Palm Beach didn't 
have the same intenseness. JCBC was used as a door mat by Miami Dade teams in the beginning, as they 
fielded far more powerful teams and ran up scores to embarrass coaches teams and the college. This accounts 



< 



for the turnover in the coaches except with the acquisition of Leroy Wheat for Baseball, Clinton Morris for Men's 
Basketball, Elaine Gavigan for Women's Tennis, and Jane Erickson for Women's Golf. The JCBC was ready to 
start an athletic program headed by Athletic Director Rex Brumley and Assistant Athletic Director Will Gifford. 
Assisting in all sports was R.L. Landers who was named assistant coach for everything from basketball to 
women's golf. Though small in numbers, the Athletic Department began its rise by making allegiances with 
different student organizations. 

The Venetian Crier gave the teams excellent support as did the Silver Sands Yearbook. It was the student body 
that needed the most attention for when faculty members announced games in classes people showed up 
especially when the faculty members made it either mandatory or for credit. The problem with the student body 
was they didn't read. Most Community college students were interested in getting to the beach or to their jobs. 
JCBC students lacked school pride. Each year, a school prep rally sponsored by the Student Government 
Association featured a bon fire, the cheerleaders, the team, a band, and a follow up social event. Normally a 
dance called the School Pride Dance was held in October or November prior to the beginning of Men's 
Basketball seasons at the JCBC. 

In 1965-66, the construction of Maye Gymnasium or Building 10 on Central Campus improved the spirit, the 
recruiting and the amount of participation. The coaches added an intramural athletic program that was started by 
Jane Erickson and Wil Gifford. This provided for Tuesday and Thursday afternoon Intramural Athletics including 
flag football, Softball, basketball, volleyball, badminton and archery held behind the gymnasium on a coral hard 
field. 

There was hope that the promotion of Intramurals would increase the number of students attending intercollegiate 
events. The administration was asked to help secure support from the community with advertisement, but the 
main emphasis was the Student Body with only the faculty holding the key to that source. When the faculty 
pushed a game, Stranahan's Gym was completely packed from wall to wall and from bottom to top with more 
than a thousand students watching a basketball game. When not, it would be difficult to see more than one 
hundred people, counting the parents and the players themselves. 



Student apathy is not new at JCBC for the lackadaisical approach, the student turnouts, very poor coverage by 
the Sun-Sentinel and Sun Tattler provided almost no real knowledge of what was going on for the then Venetian 
Crier came out on a monthly basis. There was no school marquis, bulletin boards, banners or signs allowed to be 
put up. The cheerleaders did the best they could. Dave Fitzgerald, Editor of the Venetian Crier and the first male 
Cheerleader on the JCBC cheerleading squad put it best, school spirit was lacking except for those who showed 
up for the games. In his editorials in 1966, he reminded everyone that less then one percent of the 4,500 
students showed up to take advantage of any Student Activities. 

Athletics in the mid-1 960's added four new sports: cross-country with Will Gifford, Women's Softball, Men's 
Tennis, and Men's Golf under Coach Bud Marcy made it look like JCBC was growing very fast. The total budget 
for Athletics at that time was $12,800.00. The coaches salaries were paid by the administration. The students' 
athletes insurance and scholarships were paid for by the students' fees that were taken by the administration out 
of other areas. The lack of a trainer, managers, and score keepers were overcome with a special fee established 
to pay for officiating that included not just the referees or umpires, but the score keepers and time keepers who 
turned out to be the coaches from the other sports as no one else would take the job. 

1969 was a good year, Greg "The Fox" Samuels arrived at BJC. The future Hall of Fame from South Broward 
High School was the most exciting thing every to hit the campus. He brought an extra 100 to 200 people a night 
to watch the basketball games. Some nights, he scored only 50 points, but was exciting to watch. He would go on 
to Florida State and later become a very excellent High School Coach at Hallandale. The athletes at JCBC and 
then BJC never really got much publicity from the local newspapers and that constantly hurt the athletic 
articulation between high schools and the JCBC. The high school coaches said, "Why go to the JCBC? You are 
not going to get any exposure." It was something that would hurt recruitment in the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's and 
1990's at the college. This would be one of the principal functions for the downfall of Intercollegiate Athletics. 

The 1970's brought in a full range of sports with eleven intercollegiate sports being held on Central Campus. 
Inside and outside the gym. Getting a golf course was the hardest thing but luckily one of the golfers father was 
the manager of Cooper Colony and allowed the golf program for men and women to have a place to practice. We 

were still trying to develop other sports. The construction of the Aquatic Center would bring Men and Women 

3 



Swimming to the roster of intercollegiate sports in the 1970's. The part-time coaches were the most difficult to 
understand coming in at 4:00 p.m. practice leaving at 6:00 p.m. that was the main problem of the 1970's. The 
effect of this factor would affect the student athletes academic success which eventually would contribute to the 
demise of Athletics. Student athletes were not treated as students first by these part-time coaches. The student 
athletes academic study development was not always checked. The coach did his own recruiting and very few 
coaches had any assistance. None had managers and only a part-time trainer was hired from the Sea Horse Tip 
Off Club that started the 1970's. 

The Sea Horse Tip Off Club from the ten apartments rented from Dr. John Gaul in Davie to different fundraising 
events in the early 1970's was the best booster organization in the history of JCBC/BJC. It proved that resources 
were necessary to keep students and was more than just apartments, tutors, or meal money. Actual meal money 
was forbidden by NJCAA Rules, but meal tickets were established with the ARA Food Service for three meals a 
day for the student athletes up until 1973. After 1973, food was cut back and meals were reduced as students 
thought it was more important to have books given in place of the meals. The mid 1970's saw some great 
success. Men's Golf went all the way with four consecutive years our team was in the top five of nation and even 
won the championship. Men's golf under Bud Marcy proved to be a very viable force for universities came to 
secure golfers. One particular squad in the 1970's had four of their golfers turn pro and BJC got a good reputation 
for that. Coach Morris retired from Men's Basketball so a line of coaches from Randy Everly to Hal Blitman 
started until BJC became multi-campus and added other sports teams. In the mid 1970's, the Men's Baseball 
team got their first four major leaguers into major league rosters and baseball at BJC became finally evident to 
the local newspapers who started to write stories when BJC got students into the major leagues. It was 
extremely difficult without an Sports Information Director and with an athletic director who used only one finger to 
hunt and peck. It was difficult to get stories published. 

Scholarships became the major issue, coaches started asking for students from outside Broward County. The 

coaches asked for an increase in the scholarship funds to include at least one out-of-state and two out-of-county 

athletes for each sport. This argument raged with the administration which felt that BJC should continue recruiting 

from local high schools. The athletic directors and the coaches won the argument going against the local students 

and started to recruit outside of Broward County and outside the State of Florida. This did not improve Athletics' 

4 



( 



! 



position in the county with the high schools so another failure by BJC Athletics would lead to very poor Broward 
Athletic relations for the future. 

This major problem caused us a great deal of regret. BCC would see less information given to us by local high 
school coaches. The number of high schools increased from 3 to 7 to 28 and yet BCC was never mentioned by 
most of the coaches. The articulation for Athletics was a very important loss to BCC Athletics. 

The second campus in the mid 1970's developed their own athletic teams so now there were the Trotters of North 
Campus against the Sea Horses of Central Campus. The funding pie was cut thinner, uniforms had to last an 
extra year, assistant coaches would be volunteers only, and books were checked in and out by athletic directors 
not returned to the bookstore unless they lost some of their value or were misplaced in the process. The 1970's 
developed a very competitive schedule in the seventh division with two teams per sport further cutting down the 
quality of the BJC teams. We found ourselves in a position where we had to rely on out-of-county and out-of- 
state athletes. Coaches tried to network at national conventions and state athletic counsels looking for other 
good athletes no matter what their grades which brought another major problem into BJC. In the 1970's, 
academic eligibility became a standard established by the NJCAA with BJC. The response by the part-time 
coaches was not good. The full-time coaches knew well what they had to do but now, we were down to just two 
full-time coaches, one on North and one on Central Campus. They were faculty members in the day time and 
coaches at night time. Another weakness of BJC was their coaches who weren't there during the day to help the 
student athletes. These coaches didn't encourage the student study halls, see them as student athletes only as 
athletes, or help them with registration. The turnover rate became alarming in the late 1970's. By eligibility 
standards, we lost more than we kept, as high as 13 to 15 a semester disturbing the administration. 

The opening of the Teaching, Auditorium, Gymnasium (TAG) building, later known as The OMNI was suppose to 
bring a combination of intercollegiate athletics, cultural events, and intramurals to the students of the North 
Campus. The rivalry for practice time became an almost immediate curse on the multiple purpose building, as 
community groups, opera groups, musical symphonies, volleyball and basketball competed for the same space 
same time of day so scheduling became the manager's nightmare. For the Athletic Director in charge, an easy 

going man Alton Andrews who would make it work and to his credit a program that maybe didn't equal Central 

5

Campus' in size, definitely equaled it in quality. The Trotters and Sea Horses, in the late 1970's would cause 
provost, administrators, and faculty members to journey from campus to campus to see the competition, but 
without the students. The Cheerleaders were disbanded because of a sexual preference discrepancy and that 
was not necessary at the time. The full-time coaches were hired away by other schools from North Campus. Bob 
Stenett was replaced by Carlton Byrd. The basketball program under Byrd, took off as this player who made good 
at Florida State brought BJC a good recruiting class so North Campus actually beat the Central Campus in Men's 
Basketball. Women's Basketball seemed to be about even. 

It was the court sports where Central Campus dominated .Women's Tennis, Elaine Gavigan was replaced by 
Tom Burke and a dynasty would be formed for more than two decades. The men's golf coach left so Coach 
Landers got pressed into another new job. BJC's softball teams were mediocre and having two in one county 
definitely did not recruit enough good players for both. Men's and Women's swimming with the new aquatic 
center was a scene of constant practice, club sports, pee wee instruction and camp. Camp BCC would bring the 
swimming pool to a full-time use, not on a year round basis, but a need for a bigger swimming program. 
Thousands of kids would go through the pool, which was finally closed for afternoon swim as the charge of fifty 
cents a day was not deemed enough or a reason to keep the pool open for the kids of Davie to use it. The BJC 
students showed no interest as they scurried off to work, so the college saw the aquatic complex become one for 
competition, club sports, intramural sports, but mostly intercollegiate sports. At that time, there were many Junior 
College Swim teams just in South Florida so the swim meets, not two just teams, but three or four teams would 
be competing in different events. Unfortunately, Lee Wheat resigned for his health reason from baseball. BJC and 
BCC went through a series of three baseball coaches, not the teachers or any major leaguer like Wheat. Our 
baseball program became secondary with lack of assistant coaches hurt the program. So one was added. Well if 
Baseball can have one, why can't Basketball have one, so one was added for Men's Basketball, well if Men's 
Basketball can have one why can't Women's Basketball have one and one was added, and so it went through 
every area. The payroll was absorbed by the college. The scholarships were absorbed by the college. The 
insurance and needed help programs were absorbed by the college and that made athletics doable. This led to a 
credibility issue or cost factor that would be another cause for the demise of athletics. 



( 



c 



The 1980's brought a severe decline in student enrollment. When a panic set in among the college administration, 
financial exigency was practiced with thirteen full-time personnel let go and the athletic programs be consolidated 
meaning one sport per college, not per campus. Just as the new South Campus got started the Flyers were 
dropped from the sports that were scheduled for South Campus. The cutback or mergers found the provost and 
campus administrators fighting to keep as many as possible. Women's Volleyball, Men's Basketball, Men's 
Tennis, Men's Golf and for awhile Women's Softball were on North Campus. Softball would be moved to Central 
Campus which also kept Women's Basketball, Women's Tennis, Men and Women's Swimming, Men's Baseball. 
We lost a lot, we saved $1 8,000, but the added to the decline of athletics. 

There was no real rivalry after that. There was no athletic articulation agreements with the Broward high schools 
so we lost more and more recruits to the counties on either side of us. Dade County recruited more Softball 
players out of Broward County than Broward did. The problem was what we had done before for the lack of 
media coverage caused high school coaches to tell their athletes look elsewhere. The lack of full-time coaches 
and concern for the student athletes turned off a lot of the Broward County coaches in even suggesting to the 
parents at their high school that their kids come to Broward Community College. The difficulty with funding was 
severe. The Student Activities Board scrutinizing the budget that had now grown from the original $12,800.00 to 
$56,000.00 was hit with several interesting concepts, "Why don't you take care of the insurance?, why don't you 
hire a SID?" Others outside of Athletes were developing concern of accountability as well as increasing cost 
demands. 

The new athletic program of the 1990's saw a great deal of competition between campuses to try to maintain at 
least one the intercollegiate sport, something that the campus administration could claim as an enhancement. It 
was a far cry from the 1960's and 1970's when the Junior College of Broward County was seen as the feeder 
system recipient of the local high schools. This caused a great deal of concern as the need for new athletes took 
us to a different level. The colleges in the southern conference started to recruit out-of-state and out-of-country 
athletes, real blue chippers to raise the competitive level of their teams. This cost JCBC, BJC, and finally BCC a 
higher level of commitment not only did scholarships triple for the amount of in-state scholarships cost increasing, 
but now we were expected to provide apartments and meals. There was no account, no funds, no so-called 



( 



booster operation, or scholarship raising organizations that could meet the need of the students that would come 
from outside of the United States. 

Getting publicity in South Florida was extremely difficult, no matter how competent the SID. BCC was competing 
against the teams of the National Football League, the National Basketball League, the National Baseball League, 
and the National Hockey League. These national leagues took the front, second, third and fourth pages away 
from BCC leaving only small spaces between the high school competition where BCC could be recognized. 
Some of our brightest stars, their greatest achievements, our biggest upsets and national events received not a 
single line as the newspapers saw BCC as just a stopping gap to be used as they saw fit to fill up their sport 
pages after national interest. 

New Intercollegiate Athletics after 1997 is not going to be met as teams are going to become victims of financial 
exigency. Teams with national rankings will be sacrificed because we just don't have the funds to take care of 
those teams that are no longer sanctioned. Playing an intercollegiate schedule against universities and four 
colleges is not considered by the junior college system as one of adequacy, and they feel the competition should 
be Community College based. The problem with Broward is, we have lost that competitive edge, that support 
from the community, the support from the Student Body, the support from the administration, now what remains 
is a Broward Community College athletic base that will have a little bit of show for the students. A justification to 
say, "We still have a sport", but we will lose more teams, in 1996 it was 4 teams , in 1997 "Who knows" Athletics 
in Broward Community College is going away. Few things that are different so this is not going to be easy, 
athletics will be a challenge.
