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 May 9, 1958 reads, "Getting into spirit of things, students at Pierce Junior College dress in Western clothes in anticipation of fifth annual Intercollegiate Rodeo to be held at school May 17 and 18. From left are Don Crow, Kriss Hanson, Janice Hill, Jimmy Morris, Margy Lindsay, Lynn Gossick and Sharon Cannon."
