College officials to sign name-change papers
PHILIPPI, W.Va. (AP) — Alderson-Broaddus College officials are traveling to Charleston to sign papers changing the school’s name.
College officials will meet with Secretary of State Natalie Tennant on Thursday to sign the papers and file the new charter to officially become Alderson Broaddus University.
The school’ Board of Trustees approved the name change at a meeting in April. Board chairman Ron Burbick said at the time that the change reflects the schools character and status among higher education institutions.
The private liberal arts school in Philippi was created in 1932 by the merger of Broaddus College and Alderson Academy and Junior College.
