The Official Seal
The Official Seal of John Wood Community College depicts John Wood, pioneer and trailblazer, standing tall and strong, looking to a future filled with opportunity. The plat map he holds in his hands reflects planning and the pursuit of knowledge, while the cornstalk rising from the fertile field is at once a representation of agriculture as well as a metaphor for the seed of knowledge planted in the mind of the student, carefully cultivated, and maturing to benefit many. The bluffs and tree line of the Mississippi River Valley are enduring landmarks, while the bridge and roads identify strengths in industry, transportation, and technology. Finally, the cog border symbolizes John Wood Community College as an important part of a greater mechanism. Like John Wood the man, John Wood Community College is a pioneer of innovation helping to build a better future.
