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 October 23, 1958 reads, "Nancy Fenton, center front, will reign as Queen at Pierce College's Homecoming parade and football game Nov. 8, with her court, Princesses Joyce Colman and Hilldah Clark, front row, and Barbara Izard and Judy Brewer, back row. Prizes will be awarded for sweepstakes winner, theme and most original floats in parade."
