  1. I understand wanting to change the name BUT, Is it worth the Several $Millions of Dollars it WILL cost for the Name Change? Think about it, Every thing that has the Name AND the TCC Logo on it, From all the Signs all the way down to Business Cards, Letterhead, Pens, Paper Drink Cups and everything else. I’m talking Thousands of different items that come by the Thousands. and not just on Campus, all over Town and all over the State. Changing the Name would not be cheap. Just something to think about.
