VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Community and Technical College System board of regents have approved a name change for Bowling Green Technical College.
The board voted Friday to rename the school the Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College. A statement from KCTCS says the board used a community-based selection process that generated 295 names.
In 2010, the college was granted status as a comprehensive community and technical college, allowing it to offer associate in arts and associate in science degrees.
And last year, the college signed an agreement with Western Kentucky University that allows students to jointly enroll at both schools.
