In recognition of Wenatchee Valley College at Omak’s 50th anniversary, there will be two events on the Omak campus on Nov. 30. Both events are free and open to the public and will take place in Hazel Allen Burnett Hall.

There will be an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A short presentation on the history of the campus will begin at noon. Drop in for walking tours and lunch.

That evening from 6-8 p.m., there will be a Native Heritage event. This will include a screening of the documentary “False Promises: The Lost Land of the Wenatchi,” featuring guest speakers and dinner. This event is sponsored by the Red Road Association and the Wenatchi Advisory Board.

The WVC at Omak campus was formed after the College Act passed in 1967. This act required WVC to expand its services to Okanogan County. Since it was founded, WVC at Omak has served nearly 22,000 students in a variety of academic fields. 


Wenatchee Valley College enriches North Central Washington by serving educational and cultural needs of communities and residents throughout the service area.
