Show Support For Affordable Educaion

By Staff | Feb 5, 2016

Dear Editor,

This letter is written in support of Iowa Lakes Community College’s bond referendum for the purpose of funding educational facilities projects at the five Iowa Lakes campuses. They include Emmetsburg, Algona, Estherville, Spirit Lake and Spencer.

Over 5,000 students gain from college credit and jobs training programs every year at these campuses. Statistics suggest that over 80% of Iowa Lakes graduates stay in the area after graduating.

Your support for this bond issue contributes to a critical economic driver in our communities. The cost to individuals is minimal, for many, less than one pizza per year: $11.70 per $100,000 assessed home value.

Please join me and VOTE YES to the bond referendum Tuesday, February 2, 2016 It’s vital area residents show their support of all the college does to keep education affordable and the students prepared to go to work LOCALLY.
