TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Tallahassee Community College is expected to hold a new name soon.

At a Tuesday Board of Trustees meeting, a memorandum was issued to discuss the renaming of the college, requesting the District Board of Trustees to consider a logo change of the institution, in addition to the name change.

The Board voted to approve changing TCC to Tallahassee State College.

Before the name can officially change, it must be approved by the Florida Legislature, according to a TCC spokesperson. “Senator Corey Simon and Representative Jason Shoaf are prepared to co-sponsor the bill for this session,” said the spokesperson.

Consulting firm, Pace Branding and Marketing, conducted research and an assessment that the college should change its name, according to the Board’s Tuesday agenda item. The consulting firm also provided recommendations for consideration, which were examined by the President, per the agenda item.

The Board is expected to hold its next meeting Nov. 27.
