Description

Mayo Technical College was instituted in 1938 by Governor A.B “Happy” Chandler as the first vocational school for post-secondary students in Kentucky. Over the years it evolved into a vocational-technical school, a technical institute and then Mayo Technical College. Mayo Technical College served students from 1938 until present day by using cutting edge vocational and technical programs geared to the needs of business and industry for a skilled workforce. Prestonsburg Community College, founded in 1964 under Governor Bert T. Combs’ leadership, was part of a system of community colleges governed by the University of Kentucky. Offering high quality transfer programs and community education for almost forty years, Prestonsburg Community College provided access to educational, cultural and social opportunities for residents of the Big Sandy Region, which includes Floyd, Johnson, Magoffin, Martin and Pike Counties. Mayo Technical College and Prestonsburg Community College became part of the Kentucky Community and Technical System upon its creation in 1997. July 1, 2002 marked the date that Mayo Technical College and Prestonsburg Community College began consolidating programs, services, staff and facilities to form a single two-year college. From July1, 2002 until June 30, 2003 the colleges operated in a transition phase while pursuing single SACS accreditation and searching for a single name for the College. On August 15, 2003 the KCTCS Board of Regents approved Big Sandy Community and Technical College as the name of the consolidated institution. Four campuses comprise BSCTC; Hager Hill, Mayo, Pikeville and Prestonsburg. Mayo Technical College’s COE and Prestonsburg Community College’s SACS individual accreditations were replaced by SACS single accreditation for Big Sandy Community and Technical College in December 2003.
