Oral Histories

Listen to and watch recordings of alumni, faculty, staff, administrators and community members tell of their experiences with the College.

In order to celebrate the rich history of Yavapai College, a partnership was created between the Boyd Tenney Library, Prescott Campus and the College Honors Program in 2007/2008. Mollie Gugler, College Archivist and Brent Roberts, Honors Program Coordinator led the project.

The College Honors students interviewed individuals who had a long-term association with the college. Over fifty interviews were completed. The interviewees represented a broad spectrum of experiences with the college – administrators, alumni, community members, faculty, and staff. The collective voice of their memories provides a rich testament of the passion and commitment of individuals to make Yavapai College the institution it is.

Interviews are added to this collection as time permits.
