While the Governor's initial recommendation was for the seven Wyoming community colleges to receive $15 million in increased enrollment growth funding, after a fight by legislators, the final amount for colleges was $7.7 million. Sheridan College President Dr. Paul Young had this to say during Thursday's Public Pulse.

Dr. Young said that they will still deal with the problem as if they want to continue to grow and accept more students, they will deal with the problem of finding ways to fund added instructors. On top of that, he says in the main subject areas that they offer, technical services or nursing being examples, carry the drawback being expensive hires in terms of staff.
