State Tech students named to All-Missouri Academic Team
Two State Technical College of Missouri students were honored by the Missouri Community College Association on March 5 in Jefferson City. The students were named to the All-Missouri Academic Team, an honor bestowed on the state’s top community college students.
The students honored include:
Terry Grisso. Mr. Grisso is 21-year veteran of the Air Force. He completed the heating ventilation technology program at State Tech last year and is now working on a degree in industrial technology.
Andrew Snethen. Mr. Snethen is in State Tech’s drafting program, and he is pursuing an associate of applied science degree. He has been on the dean’s list and has held numerous jobs, including working as a mover during the summer and a movie theater employee, and he helps with his dad’s lawn mowing business.

The Missouri Community College Association is a statewide organization through which Missouri’s community colleges work together to advance common agendas. MCCA provides advocacy, education, information, and networking opportunities in service of the state’s 5,700 community college faculty, staff, administrators, and trustees.
Linn Sate Technical College is Missouri’s only state technical college. Hands-on technical courses balanced with a strong foundation in communication, problem solving, decision-making and critical thinking prepare graduates for profitable employment and a life of learning.
On July 1, 2014, State Technical College of Missouri’s name will change to the State Technical College of Missouri. This name change better reflects our statewide role in technical education.
