A new bulletin board was completed in front of the campus in November 1960. The lighted attraction sign, purchased with Associated Student Body funds, replaced the modest metal plaque which had been the only identification of FJC for 45 years. The sign was constructed by Gallegos Brothers Construction, who also built the new Auto Shop. The new $4,000, 9-foot announcement sign was designed to be visible from both directions on Chapman Avenue and was made of brick, glass, and metal and surrounded by ornamental brickwork. Lighted boards were also placed in front of the Art-Home Economics Building (the Fine Arts Building) and the Student Center.
