It took a year longer than expected but Pittsburg State Alumni in Missouri will be able to display their Gorilla pride on official state license plates.
“It’s exciting news,” said Johnna Norton, director of alumni and constituent relations. “We received word in July that the governor had signed the bill into law and that we would be able to start exactly where we left off last year.”
University officials have been told to expect a 90-day wait until the first plates are produced and delivered to applicants.
“Ironically, the delay has actually increased interest in the program from our alumni,” explained Norton. “They can’t wait to be able to show off the best plate in the state.”
