Our Namesake

The Conference Center at Lorain County Community College is dedicated in honor of John A. Spitzer, 1917-1992, in recognition of his inspirational leadership to our community. Spitzer built a successful business dynasty that included a car dealership organization and real estate developments.

A Grafton native, he was a World War II veteran, earning the rank of captain in the Army Air Corps through officer candidate school. He attended The Ohio State University and was a drummer in the first football marching band to perform “Script Ohio.”

This Center symbolizes his commitment to community, entrepreneurialism and belief in Lorain County Community College to help others realize their dreams.
