Rep. Jasperse calls BOE plans to cut funding “short sighted”
If the school board cuts funding to the Pickens County 4-H as they have indicated at recent budget workshops, programs offered to students will be “seriously impacted,” according to the 4-H manager.
“That’s what’s been proposed, cutting us,” said Pickens County 4-H Manager Clarcy Kirby. “Until we get the tax digest the school board can’t make the final decision, but the school is funding 50 percent of our program assistant position and benefits for that position, so if the cuts go through that will go down to a part-time position.”
