An announced Screen shot 2014-05-13 at 10.50.19 AM$1.2 million cut in state funds for Southeastern Community College for school year 2014-15 could mean cuts in personnel. In a statement released by the college late Monday, SCC is facing the cut due to decreased curriculum enrollment. According to the statement, SCC is reorganizing and restructuring some departments, which has resulted in the elimination of some positions. SCC underwent a $1.3 million cut this year, but was able to preserve positions until now. “While job loss is always a last resort, the administration of SCC is optimistic that with these reductions and forward-thinking plans, the college will be poised to continue serving the Columbus County community with high quality education and job preparation opportunities,” reads the remainder of the statement.
