On December 18, 1970, a charter signed by the Board of Regents, created the Marion County Technical Institute, which is known today as Marion Technical College. The College is marking its 50th anniversary with the publication of Marion Technical College: The First Fifty Years 1970 – 2020 written by Teresa L. Parker. This book highlights the milestones and the stories of the college and its people. This beautifully written and designed hardcover book includes approximately 100 pages of history and photographs to commemorate MTC’s first 50 years. This book is both a celebration and a foundation for the next 50 years.
