About Charles D. Worthington Atlantic City Campus

Wacc building

In 1982 the former Atlantic City Electric Company Building was purchased by Atlantic County for the then Atlantic Community College which was renamed Atlantic Cape Community College in February of 1999. By 1984 a $4,000,000 renovation project transformed the aging building into a modern facility, the college’s Atlantic City Center.

The Center was renamed in memory of Atlantic County’s first county Executive, Charles D. Worthington, in April 2001. Mr. Worthington had been involved with the college first as chairperson of its Educational Opportunity Fund Advisory Board and then as Atlantic County Executive, supporting the establishment of many college programs and the development of the Atlantic City Campus.
