Local Community College Students To Rally For State Funding

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Wednesday, hundreds of students from Maryland's 16 community colleges will head to the State Capital to rally for funding. 


Students will meet with lawmakers and urge them to support Governor Martin O'Malley's budget, which hopes to increase operating funding and maintain capital funds for the state's two-year colleges. 

" When they talk to their state senator and tell them their personal story about how financial aid allows them to complete the community college and that they need to support Governor O'Malley's budget for community colleges because right now tuition - 30% of students' tuition comes from the state and 48% comes from the students' own pocket," Dean of Student Development at Wor-Wic Community College Lynn Wiljanen said. 

We're told about two dozen students from Wor-Wic Community College plan to head out there.
