(Jefferson City) (AP) – A Missouri Senate committee is considering a new name for Linn State Technical College.
The mid-Missouri college would be known as the State Technical College of Missouri under a bill outlined Wednesday to the Senate Education Committee.
Sponsoring Republican Sen. Mike Kehoe, of Jefferson City, said the change would reflect the statewide mission of the technical college and could help market it to more students.
Linn State is a two-year school based in Osage County. It has more than 1,000 students from 100 Missouri counties.
The committee did not vote on the proposal Wednesday.
