Wicomico Commits Another $212K To Wor-Wic

SALISBURY – Officials in Wicomico County this week made a supplemental appropriation of $212,400 to cover Wor-Wic Community College’s operating expenses for the remainder of the fiscal year.

In a legislative session of the Wicomico County Council Tuesday, officials agreed to transfer $212,400 in contingencies to the community college.

Ray Hoy, president of Wor-Wic, came before the Worcester County Commissioners and Wicomico County Council once in February to seek funds for a $600,000 shortfall. Though Worcester County provided the money upfront, officials in Wicomico County gave the money in two parts.

While Worcester County contributed its full $175,000, Wicomico County provided $212,400.

Why doesn't Somerset County help out. They have many residents enrolled there. Second.....how did they wind up that short on their budget. In my opinion there are to many students going there free of charge. So now my tax dollars are paying their way. Not only did I pay full price to go to college I'm still paying off student loans. Now I have to pay for others to go to school free of charge. This is what the progressive movement is all about.

For what! Promise you they are doing "buy aheads" right now to eat up current funding. Every year they have a surplus!

Why are we giving all this money to WorWic when the infrastructure in the county has issues needing attention? For crying out loud, why is it so hard to understand, the area has no businesses to employee these community college graduates unless they're ALL in nursing.

WTH?

And free tuition to boot!

Wor Wic = free (or almost free) tuition, poorly paid instructors, yet Capelli and Hoy are among the highest paid CC adminstrators in the state...go figure (oh, right: that requires math).

Wor Wic was not founded on tax dollars. These new administrators are poor economist. The Tax Payer should not be giving tax dollars to a for profit business. If they cannot live within their budget then the shut down. All their credits are not transferable to Universities / SU included. So why waste money there when you will have to take the same classes over and be paying double. I know that as a fact because I had to do it.

I can see right now that Wor Wic has become yet another White Elephant. When in the heck is Culver going to wake-up and hold this group accountable for a misappropriation of taxpayers monies. The bleeding rabbit hole needs to be shut down.
