This cut is shortsighted and needs to be restored before the budget is finalized. For nearly 50 years, CFCC's program has trained generations of not only local residents, but people from all over the state. They come to Wilmington just to emroll in this program and find jobs in the marine industry after graduation.
The program has 140 students enrolled this semester alone with more waiting to get in.
If this program is eliminated, any future job possibilities go with it.
