YOUR COLLEGE OUR COMMUNITY Sentinels stand together. NFC celebrates name change with students during luncheon on Aug. 21 at the NFC campus. John Grosskopf, President North Florida College “ You can be sure that we will always remember who we are, and that service to our community is at the heart of everything we do. “ North Florida Junior College. In July 1995, the District Board of Trustees changed the name of the College from North Florida Junior College to North Florida Community College in order to better define the purpose of the institution. Now 24 years later, the College is once again moving forward under a new name that better defines its future but does not change its mission which is centered around its students and community. “As North Florida College, we will aggressively prepare our students for 21st-century jobs, create programs and opportunities to meet our district’s workforce needs, and develop strategic partnerships with community, business and industry leaders to benefit our students, graduates and community,” said Grosskopf.
