Parent of the Pride.
Is your young adult Ready to Roar? The Lion legacy continues for parents, many of
whom are alums themselves, who send their children to Wallace State, and even for
parents who join their child in college, taking that bold first step into their own
higher education and training. We’re all about family at Wallace State. And we’ve
served generations since 1966. We’re proud to represent the beginning of new higher
education traditions, and the continuation of existing ones. For high school grads
and their parents, Wallace State Community College is One Door – to big successes,
bold legacies, and more.
