As of Wednesday, Lake Area Technical Institute is now Lake Area Technical College. Governor Kristi Noem signed House Bill 1083 that re-named “technical institutes” to “colleges" during this year’s legislative session. The name change is designed to take away confusion for those who compare “Colleges” to “Institutes”. Luann Strait, Director of Student Services at Lake Area Tech says this is something they have been waiting for….
Strait says the name change put the technical schools in line with other colleges in the state…..
Nothing will change, Lake Area will still offer the programs they currently have. One thing that has changed is their logo….
