Barlow County Community College
Barlow County Community College (BCCC) is a location in the Melisende Dulac Series.
BCCC was founded in 1909 as Barlow Agricultural College on the northeast ridge overlooking Samuelton. The school received a substantial endowment from Dalton Hensley, which helped fund construction of the original building.
In the 1960s, Barlow Agricultural College was reorganized as a community college offering a range of two-year associate and vocational degrees. In the early 1970s, the Bouton family made a donation to the school to create a mortuary science program. Because the donation was made privately, at the family's request, it is not widely known the Bouton's had any hand in creating the program.
At the time of the events of Crossroad, Barb Ellingson is a mathematics instructor at the college. Melisende Dulac entered the mortuary science program in the fall after the events of Crossroad and is nearing the end of her first year at the time of The Sheepshooter's Funeral.
