HCC savors growing gains Launched in 1957 with a $10,000 grant from the county government, Harford Junior College - as it was known back then - opened its doors with 119 students and 16 staff members. The college offered night courses at $7 per credit hour in classrooms at Bel Air High School. "When I first started teaching, I had a classroom that I shared with the other part-time instructors," said Dorothy Dare, 84, an Aberdeen resident who taught math in the school's inaugural year. "The rooms were sparsely furnished with a teacher's desk, a chalkboard and desks for the students.

Sitting in an office just a short pass from the school's gymnasium, former football coach Dick Fordyce reflected on his nearly 40 years of service at Harford Community College and how he got to this point. "It all began with a leg injury after three games in my senior year in high school," said the Pittsburgh native. "Like most football players in my area, I expected to play college football in western Pennsylvania. But most area schools lost interest." He explained that a friend of his high school coach happened to be in Pittsburgh attending a coaches convention.

With its expanding population, rich base of military jobs and lack of a four-year university, Harford County is widely viewed as the next key frontier in Maryland higher education. Morgan State and Towson University want to establish satellite operations in the county. Both say they can offer unique programs that perfectly suit Harford's need for technology-savvy, business-adept graduates. Both are coveted by county leaders. Yet the two institutions, which have clashed over programs before, disagree over how the expansion should occur.

Irna Jay was explaining the photographs in her new exhibit when she stopped cold. "This one is crooked," she said, darting back to get a small red level to place over the scene of men playing pool on St. John Street. The slight list was barely noticeable, but small details mean a lot to Jay. A documentary photographer, Jay uses those details to craft images that illuminate the world beyond her lens. Now 54 of her photos, focusing on Havre de Grace, are on display at the Chesapeake Gallery at Harford Community College, in a show called Havre de Grace: A Living Portrait.

Usually a library is the place to go to research a project, but for the Harford Community College Future Interior Designers Organization, the library itself was the project. The student club transformed a former administrative office in the historic Hays-Heighe House in Churchville into a formal "gentleman's library" during last year's AMC Cancer Research Center Decorator Show House. The students were rewarded for their efforts on the Hays-Heighe House project when they were chosen in September for first place in the student division of the Interior Design Competition sponsored by the Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers and Chesapeake Home Magazine.

The total per credit cost for in-county students at Harford Community College was increased last week to $124.80, which translates to $374.40 for a single three-credit class. It's hardly a king's ransom. College officials are also quick to point out that it is a bargain relative to the cost of attending even a Maryland college system facility as an in-state student. Still, as has been noted before, the latest round of increases (to fees rather than tuition, a distinction that's meaningful only to hair-splitters)
