Mount Marty to become university

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – More changes ahead for Mount Marty College in Yankton.

At a news conference this morning, President Marc Long referred to a speech given by Mount Marty Founder, Mother Jerome Schmitt on the mission of the school.

Long says they have seen a lot of positive momentum in the past few years.

Long says later this summer, the college will have a new name.
