Moments from Martin's History

Martin Technical Institute Cartoon

Throughout our 50th anniversary year, we will be featuring photographs and articles from Martin's past.  From October, 1972 to July, 1976, The Enterprise published a series of cartoons titled "The MTI Story: Telling it Like it Is," which were drawn by then math instructor Leslie W. Bailey.  (MCC was called Martin Technical Institute when it opened in 1968.)  You can laugh at all the "MTI Story" cartoons by clicking on the Local History Room tab above.

Cartoon reprinted with permission from the Martin County Enterprise & Weekly Herald.
