Letter: LBCC’s Sweet Home closure not a surprise (March 1, 2023)


The closure of the Linn-Benton Community College facility in Sweet Home (Feb. 22) is disappointing but not a surprise. 

I offered two classes there in the fall and had two people sign up.  But that was not a surprise either, because there was almost no promotion for the classes beyond the fliers I made and posted myself. 

I learned later that budget cuts meant fewer catalogs mailed to the Sweet Home area (I didn’t receive one in my mail). 

If LBCC is sincere in its effort to include Sweet Home in its programs, a stronger commitment and better promotion will be required.
