IHCC President Reacts to Bond Issue Outcome

Letter to the Editor

Thank you to all who voted in the Indian Hills Community College bond election. Agreeing to pay more taxes is a difficult thing to do, but many of you understood that the public higher education and workforce training delivered by a community college is an important thread in the fabric of our southern Iowa communities. Up-to-date, affordable education that leads to family-sustaining wages is what we are about. Many taxing entities vie for a piece of the pie and despite the fact that Indian Hills’ “piece” won’t be increasing, our needs will not go away.

Nevertheless, we will continue to provide the people and communities in southern Iowa the best education and workforce training they can get anywhere.

Dr. Marlene Sprouse
President, Indian Hills Community College
