April 14: Legacy of Education in Napa

Napa was a fast-growing town in 1942 when Napa High School principal Harry McPherson created a junior college for continuing education. That school eventually became the Napa Valley College, and this weekend, the college marks it’s 75th Founders Day Festival & Open House with a celebration of McPherson’s contribution to the community. Tour the college campus, get details on free classes and job-training programs, and enjoy live music, food, wine, classic cars, kids activities and more on Saturday, April 14, at Napa Valley College, 2277 Napa Vallejo Hwy., Napa. 10am to 4pm. Free admission. 707.256.7500.
