Snow, ice shut down campus


Snow and ice caused the college to close on Feb. 23 and 24 and prompted an early dismissal Feb. 27. The weather also caused several events to be rescheduled, including a memorial service at Eastfield for the Dallas County Community College District’s first chancellor Bill Priest, the Harvester Theatre Co.’s performance of “The Great Gatsby” and the Black History Month read-in honoring Maya Angelou. Although spring break begins March 9, the winter weather may not be over. Sleet and freezing rain were forecast for the afternoon of March 4.
