The Old College Try

In Brief

July 21, 2010, 5:00 am
Community College is on a campaign to secure a cool $35 million in bond funding. In a state beleaguered by budget problems. In a recession.

“We’re getting a lot of positive response,” SFCC President Sheila Ortego tells SFR. “It’s a scary time for people, but I think they realize education is one of the most important investments you can make.”

Ortego will hit up KSFR, the Rotary Club and Girls Inc. of Santa Fe this week to make her pitch in the run-up to the Aug. 3 vote (votesfcc.com). The biggest chunk of bond money ($12 million) is slated for building a new higher education center—most likely on land adjacent to the College of Santa Fe—with the rest going to green programs, infrastructure, technology and parking upgrades.
