Celebrating 55 Years

Lake Area Technical College has kicked off a year-long celebration as the school marks 55 years of providing post-secondary education in Watertown. Established in January 1965 as South Dakota’s first technical College, Lake Area Technical College is proud to continue the tradition of offering pathways to success for our current students as well as all of the future students to come.

One of the first happenings planned for the celebration is to begin highlighting Lake Area Technical College alumni. Watch for 55 Alumni Highlights throughout the year on our social media channels and here on the website.

Lake Area Technical College planned to celebrate throughout the year during public events, however with the current COVID-19 situation, we will celebrate by posting memories from Alumni, Faculty, and Staff. We hope you enjoy them! More will be posted as they come in.
