ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud Technical and Community College has announced the name of its new veterans' center.

After public voting, the center will be named the Homefront Resource Center, a center for service members, veterans and their families. The new center will be in the former CentraCare Heartland building.

SCTCC President Joyce Helens says having " Homefront" in the name was highly preferred by voters.

"Homefront seemed to be that unifier that said 'we're coming back home' and the college is saying we're a home for you."

The steering committee felt the name has these attributes:

  • Crosses serivce branches
  • Is a unifier
  • Is all-inclusive
  • Resource Center was preferred by voters over Rally Point 
The college accepted nominations for potential names in May and narrowed the list from 43 to 10. Voting on the final 10 has been ongoing for the last few weeks.
