RED WING -- A group in Red Wing is hoping to bring a four-year college to the city.
"We look like a college town, but we don't have a college," said Tom Longlet, a board member of the Jones Family Foundation and retired Red Wing banker. The foundation has worked toward bringing a four-year college to Red Wing for several years, and now that mission is being taken up by the Red Wing Higher Education Partnership.
While Minnesota State College Southeast Technical, the community college located near Red Wing High School, provides a great technical skills education opportunity, he said, a liberal arts and technology-focused college would serve the needs of businesses regionally.
