Southeastern Illinois College will get money, but less than before - Travis Deneal, Harrisburg Register

As Southeastern Illinois College President Jonah Rice looked over budget numbers in preparation of his college's board of trustees meeting Tuesday afternoon, he offered what he calls an "interesting perspective" on state funding for the community college. "When I was first hired in 1990, the state portion of our budget was $3.9 million," Rice said. He is an alumnus of SIC, a member of the college's first national championship speech team and began his educational career there as a humanities instructor. To say he cares deeply about the college's well-being is an understatement. "With the budget passed, we've been told that the amount we'll receive is based on the 2015 budget, less 10 percent," he said.
