The Clarence W. Pierce School of Agriculture is a two-year community college in Woodland Hills, California. It opened in September 1947, with 70 students and 18 faculty members and is part of the Los Angeles Community College District. The school's initial focus was crop cultivation and animal husbandry, and still retains a large swatch of open fields for hands-on working farm training. In 1956 the school was renamed Los Angeles Pierce College. Photograph caption dated April 30, 1964 reads, "Rodeo queen - Shannon Petrezzi, 20, Woodland Hills, center, will be crowned Pierce College's Rodeo Queen Friday night at a campus dance. Dorothy Paar, 18, from Santa Monica, left, and Sharon Gebert, 21, from Tarzana, were also finalists."
