Officials Urge Reconsideration Of STCC Cuts

State legislators and others held a news conference on Wednesday to call attention to cuts at Springfield Technical Community College.

College president John Cook announced the cuts to seven programs and twenty-one staff members earlier this summer.

State Representatives Angelo Puppolo Jr. and Bud Williams, both graduates of STCC, spoke; Puppolo called the cuts unconscionable; Williams said state lawmakers will work to get additional state or federal funding for the college.

Cook meantime says he will work with lawmakers to find ways to bring back programs and people.
