District changes name
The Kokomo-Center Schools board voted unanimously Monday to change the district’s name to Kokomo School Corp.
Officials said the old name, which officially was Kokomo-Center Township Consolidated School Corp., was obsolete.
It had adopted that name in 1954 when Kokomo and Center Township voters approved a referendum for consolidation by a 2-to-1 margin.
With the annexation of most of Center Township into the city of Kokomo, however, the identification of Center Township as a separate educational unit is no longer needed, said Joe Dunbar, school board president.
