Last year, as the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly began to put together its budget, there were many student protests as the “non-departmental” funding for the Kenai Peninsula College was expected to be cut. In the end, the funding remained in the budget. KPC President Gary Turner spoke with us recently. He told us the funds do have a place at the college.
In an effort to secure the funds for the upcoming year, Turner has already begun a discussion with Borough Mayor Mike Navarre as he prepares the 2012-2013 fiscal year budget.
