ASHLAND — Ashland Community and Technical College has a fresh look that includes a new logo and an updated, more student-focused website.

The new logo and revamped website are part of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System’s 20-year anniversary authentic identity project, which celebrates KCTCS’ two decades as the state’s ninth public postsecondary institution.

The project, which was more than a year in the making, created a new logo and significant website makeover for each of the 16 colleges and the system office.

“The system has evolved during its first 20 years, and the time was right to learn what KCTCS means to students, faculty and staff as well as prospective students — our authentic identity,” said Mary Hemlepp, KCTCS Senior Communications Strategist.

The new logos, a contemporary version of the original college logos, features a sunrise inside the state, and the sun has 16 rays that represent the 16 colleges.

The college websites makeover was designed to bring them more in line with technology and to encompass features prospective students expect to find in a college website. It includes more photos and videos that are more directly related to students’ lives on and off campus to reflect the authentic identity research findings.
