Gulf Coast Community College soon will be known as Gulf Coast State College after the school’s District Board of Trustees voted unanimously Thursday to approve the name change.

Board members hailed the vote, which comes more than 40 years after the college’s last name change, as a historic event in GCCC’s history.

President Jim Kerley said the new name would honor the college’s past and emphasize its future plans to offer more four-year degree programs.

“We’re still a community college; we’re just expanding our mission,” Kerley said moments before the board approved the name change.

The name change still has to be approved by the Florida Legislature, state Board of Education and accreditation organization Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
