To the Editor:

On Nov. 5, the Iowa Valley Community College District (IVCCD) Board of Directors is putting a $32 million General Obligation Bond Referendum before area voters. What some people may not understand is the degree to which ongoing support of our local community colleges is critical to: offering education beyond high school at an affordable price; providing educational opportunities to improve lives and careers to those who have no other college options; supporting local economic development by working with industries and businesses; upskilling incumbent workers’ competencies; and, preparing prospective employees for the local workforce.
