100th Anniversary Time Capsule Ready for Journey!
Delta’s 100 Yrs (Anniversary) Time Capsule has been cleared for its voyage through time and space! It’s been 50 years since Stockton Jr. College separated from the Stockton Unified School District in 1963. San Joaquin Delta College was born!
In celebration of Delta's 50th, the college recently completed filling a new “100th Anniversary” time capsule which will be opened in 2063. The contents include: videos, Delta magazines, campus information, photos and numerous items reflecting Delta's vibrant role in the community. The capsule has been sealed. As for specifics of the contents, well...you'll need to wait 50 years!
The Time Capsule Committee consisted of retired Delta Social Science instructors Chuck Bloch, Del McComb, former manager Toni Guantone, and Superintendent/President, Dr. Kathy Hart. Bloch and McComb are noted Delta College historians and debated many items for inclusion.
"There were hundreds of worthy items considered for the capsule," said McComb. "You hate to leave anything out." Chuck Block agreed. "There is only so much room in the capsule. When push came to shove, I think the committee made excellent choices." McComb warned with a grin, “A curse on anyone who opens this capsule before 2063!”
