August 20, 2011

Howard College trustees are expected to formally approve the budget and tax rate for the coming fiscal year when they hold their monthly meeting at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the student union building’s Tumbleweed Room.
College officials have crafted a $36.6 million budget, which is almost $1.5 million less than the previous year. That decrease reflects both a loss of state revenue and the completion of bond-related renovation projects during the past few months.

August 20, 2011

“I saw an ad in the newspaper and answered it. At the time I had no idea what a chamber did,” ValVerde said. “I came in and I was told I’d start tomorrow and well, I’ve been here ever since.”
