Maryland County District #1 Rep. P. Mike Jurry has written the House of Representatives, craving its indulgence to amend the act that established Stella Maris Polytechnic to elevate it to Stella Maris Polytechnic University.
According to Rep. Jurry, since the establishment of Stella MarisPolytechnic, the institution has been doing well.
He tells his colleagues at the House of Representatives that products of Stella Maris Polytechnic are prepared and are seen everywhere.
Rep. Jurry continues that one of the colleges at Stella Maris is giving out degrees in health sciences, adding that Stella Maris has more staff and has constructed more buildings, putting it in a position to get university status.
He wants Sections 1,2 and 3 of the statute known as an Act to dissolve the Arthur Barclay Technical Institute and to grant a Charter to the Don Bosco Polytechnic and to further dissolve the Don Bosco Polytechnic to a charter to the Monsignor Stephen Kyne Technical College, to amend them to the extent set forth.
He notes that immediately upon the passage of the Act, the institution called Stella Maris Polytechnicand Monsignor Stephen Kyne Technical College shall accordingly operatein the name of “Stella Maris Polytechnic University,” (SMPU).
Meanwhile the full plenary has instructed the Committee on Educationto review the bill and report in two weeks.
