NEO not slowed by budget cuts - Jim Ellis, Miami News Record

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College is looking into the future. While the school’s budget has been shredded due to recurring state budget failures, NEO officials are forging ahead with several new initiatives, some already under way and some targeted for the future. NEO has received nearly $1.5 million less than its previous year’s state appropriation and since the arrival of Dr. Jeff Hale as president in 2008, appropriations have been slashed by almost 30 percent. “We have a plan.” Those plans include new student housing, a modernization of the school’s fiber optic network, a new academic support program, an honors program and the continuation of renovation work and improvements at the Synar Farm.
