Lehigh Carbon Community College will place dozens of new signs throughout the Schnecksville campus by July.
Students, faculty and visitors to Lehigh Carbon Community College will have an easier time navigating their way around the main campus thanks to dozens of new signs that will be installed by late summer. The college will spend $264,000 to create and install 84 new signs, including some in 3D and a large electronic sign at the school's entrance on Route 309. The board of trustees approved a bid Thursday to hire Forman Sign Company of Philadelphia to install the signs. "We'd like to have them all up and working before the kids are back," said Carl Peckitt, LCCC's director of facilities and maintenance. Peckett said the college's marquis entrance sign, which will have a message board, will take longer to construct and may not be ready in July…

Citing 'philosophical differences,' Parkland School Board director Robert Cohen resigns from Lehigh Carbon Community College's Board of Trustees.
Parkland School Board Director Robert Cohen said he resigned from Lehigh Carbon Community College's Board of Trustees earlier this month, citing "philosophical differences." Cohen would not elaborate, citing confidentiality reasons. "I decided I needed to remove myself from that environment," Cohen said. Cohen, who has served as the school board's representative for the last four years, said he submitted his letter of resignation April 3. The board accepted his resignation at its April 16 meeting.

LCCC asked Parkland for $25,751 more than last year to help fund the $439,830 more it needs to fund next year's budget. Board member David Kennedy …
