Proposal: Change Linn State's name

January 27th, 2013 in News

Is it time for Linn State Technical College to change its name?

"There has been some discussion of the desirability in the state of Missouri for us to have a name change from "Linn State Technical College,' to drop the word "Linn' and substitute, say, "Missouri' so that it would be "Missouri State Technical College,'" President Don Claycomb said Friday, after the school's board of regents meeting.

Linn State is 52 years old, started by the Linn Public Schools in 1961 as "Linn Technical Junior College."
