College Will Lay Off Staff in Response to Funding Drops - Pat Blair, Sheridan Media

The Northern Wyoming Community College District will lay off administrative staff, cut expenses and draw on reserve funds to offset a loss of $1.8 million in operating funds for the next two years. College President Dr. Paul Young delivered the message to the district's board of trustees in a budget work session at Sheridan College Thursday night. Young said the loss from the state comes on the heels of a $1.5 million decrease in annual Sheridan County tax contributions, which have dropped by 44 percent since 2010. He said the district will cut five staff positions, four at Sheridan College and one at Gillette College, which the district also owns. The district also owns an outreach center in Buffalo, but no cuts are planned there.
