HJC to change to 'community college'
Hagerstown Junior College will become Hagerstown Community College if the Maryland Higher Education Commission, as expected, approves the name change, HJC President Norman Shea said Tuesday.
"We think the name Hagerstown Community College is a truer reflection of the college," Shea said.
A commission subcommittee has recommended the name change be approved, Shea said. The commission will vote on the change April 15.
Shea said he didn't know when the name change would take effect. It could be July 1 or April 15, he said.
