MREP Center Considering Name Change

Officials with the Manchester Regional Education Partnership center are considering a name change.

The MREP center offers classes through NICC and Upper Iowa at their location in the Dupaco building in Manchester. To make the center easier to find and more consistent with NICC and Upper Iowa’s other extended centers, officials would like to change the name from the Manchester Regional Education Partnership center to simply the “Manchester Center”.

The MREP center’s Holly Maurer and Wendy Mihm-Herold proposed the idea to the Manchester City Council and Delaware County Board of Supervisors on Monday. Both the Council and Board were supportive of the idea.

A grant from the Delaware County Community Chest will help the center with their re-marketing efforts.
