MONTREAT, N.C.--Montreat-Anderson College officially changed its name to
Montreat College on Aug. 22. An official "Year of the Mountains" event, the
opening convocation ceremony featured well-known photographer Hugh Morton,
owner of Grandfather Mountain, as keynote speaker. The name change was
approved at the April board of trustees meeting after a yearlong study as
part of the development of a new strategic plan for the college. According
to William Hurt, college president, the "new" name change is not new to the
campus, but reflective of the college's four-year status and return to its
heritage as a baccalaureate degree-granting institution.
