College staff raise money to help pay fees


NT Staff




Illinois Valley Community College’s 2013-14 support staff service project will help several students pay increased GED testing fees.

The $1,344 raised will pay the equivalent of 11 students taking the complete test.  

In 2014, the GED transitioned from paper to computer-based and the cost went from $50 to $120. Some GED students had difficulty paying even the $50, let alone the $120 and it further delayed their progress.      

Support staff fundraising included a cookout, bake sale, “gently-used sale” and lasagna dinner.

Since 2005, IVCC support staff have raised money for various community and college causes including the Illinois Valley Food Pantry, a student emergency living needs fund and local animal shelters.

The TOP 2% need to kick in some cabbage.

IVCC FINANCIAL LOITERING:

ICCB WEB SITE as of 2012-13:
JEROME M CORCORAN Title: PRESIDENT: IVCC Base Pay: $ 190,110 Benefits: $ 30,689

CHERYL ELAINE ROELFSEMA Title: VICE PRESIDENT

SUE ISSERMAN Title: VICE PRESIDENT

When enrollments are down the administrators should lead by example and take a pay cut. That’s ridiculous of Larry Huffman to ask the student to give up a soda or a cup of coffee a day to make up for the tuition increase.

HEADS DEEP IN THE IVCC PUBLIC TROUGH
