A community college here in the east is burying momentos to show the history and the transformations of the college over the years.

Beaufort County Community College buried a 2019 time capsule Thursday that will be opened on the college's 75th anniversary.

The college actually opened a time capsule from 1992 in 2017 and unfortunately a lot of the items that were buried were destroyed by water damage. This new time capsule today is air tight to preserve items from over the years and show students what life was like in 2019.

Items placed in the time capsule include local magazines, a yearbook from the Beaufort County Early College High School, and photos of campus and campus events.

Robert Cayton is the BCCC Board of Trustees Chairman who was there when the 1992 capsule was opened in 2017. He says he's seen a lot of growth since then and thinks the college will continue to develop and influence the community.

Cayton says changes include, "Upgraded many of the facilities and we've also got a vigorous plan to continue to grow the college, more land as been purchased as well as more buildings been built."

The time capsule will be opened on 2042 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the college where people will be able to see how things have changed over the course of 23 years.
