Green River College cuts two programs, still faces budget woes - HEIDI SANDERS, Kent Reporter

Mark Millbauer, Green River College’s auto body program head and Union Faculty president, is upset about his program’s demise and concerned about how his students will transfer to continue their education. Two Green River College programs will be shut down in a cost-saving effort, and more cuts could follow as the college faces a $2.5 million to $3.5 million budget deficit. College officials announced on July 15 the elimination of auto body technology and geographic information systems, while carpentry, which had also been on the chopping block, will continue to operate. As a result of the program cuts, two full-time instructors – one from auto body and one from geographic information systems – will lose their jobs.
