C.O.M. Wasn't Built in a Day is a new, original comedy written in honor of College of the Mainland’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. Very loosely based on people and events during COM’s first semester in the fall of ’67 at the old Booker T. Washington High School, COM president Dr. Herbert F. Stallworth already has plenty to contend with in getting his new college off the ground, but an Open House Night with no A/C just before a vital bond election doesn’t make it any easier.

Throw in a greedy town mayor, a wily chamber of commerce president, a very vocal student senate, a well-meaning custodian and additional pressure from “the powers that be” and you’ve got a hurricane of commotion! But with his trademark wit and affability, Dr. Stallworth navigates the rocky waters in this funny and affectionate mix of fact and fiction. The rest, as they say, is history.
