Sheldon Jackson College closure draws reactions from more than 200 affected

Late last week, faculty and staff at Sitka’s Sheldon Jackson College were informed they had lost their jobs because the school was shutting down its academic program for one year. College President David Dobler laid off 100 people that day during a mandatory meeting that was closed to the public. One hundred students enrolled for next fall are also facing an uncertain future.
