A we initiated the request for discussion a he added. A qua is not trying to gobble us up. There a been a feeling of cooperative Ness on their a jct a message to a so far he says is a what can you do to merge Sec into the a system but still allow a degree of Independence to guarantee the integrity and uniqueness of this Campus and to safeguard the continuation of properties and their use that Are now held in Trust amp As examples of those Trust properties he mentioned gifts to the Sec museum and Library. However Holloway said the College has several ways out of its current problems. A and we have to look at All of them a he said. A we can to say we re bankrupt when Sec is Worth Between $15 and $75 million depending on who a doing the assessment and what Type of assessment it is he added. Solutions could include a fund raising drive and raising enough to Start an endowment program. A land development project involving some or All of a jct a 320 acres North of Sawmill Creek Road could bring Money to the school through lease or Sale of that land. The colleges main Campus lies on about 40 acres. These Are stil viable options Holloway said. Another that he has investigated so far has proved unlikely. In new York and Pennsylvania private institutions and Public institutions can cooperate financially in certain ways but alaskans Constitution wont allow use of those states plans for such cooperation. He said that with announcement of possible merger Between a and Sec Many people Are upset and want to raise Money for the Sec but any such attempt must be coordinated and approved by the Synod of the Northwest of the presbyterian Church. Representatives of such a fund raising group still forming Are currently approaching the Synod about this Holloway said. Sec has Many constituents to think about while deciding its future Holloway said. A we feel our first allegiance is to the he said the people of Alaska particularly the natives whom the school has had a history of serving and the residents of Sitka must be considered. Sheldon Jackson College has a significant Impact economically in Sitka Holloway pointed out. Of its $2.5 million budget about $1.5 million is payroll and much of the rest of the schools spending is funnelled through the Sitka business Community he said. Many of the schools students Are alaskan native. Sec makes a special Effort through dorm Counselor and a tutorial program to make up for past inequities and problems of acculturation Between education of natives and Whites in Alaska. A if this College were to close Alaska would lose one of the finest educational institutions its had a a Holloway said. That a Why consideration must be Given to All the colleges options he added. Of the merger possibility he said any proposals a jct a Board of trustees might consider about specifics of a merger would not be Public information in order to give the schools committee leeway in negotiating with a. He also said he had no idea yet what a might propose. Holloway assumed that if agreement about a merger did evolve Between the schools a would have to present a plan before the legislature started again next january in order to fund any such agreement. Papers saying they were a not too familiar with the process by nomination. In addition Wood said he was told by the elections office in Anchorage that it had run out of die forms he needed to collect signatures. In order to meet the filing deadline Wood said his friends and family went door to door with photocopied forms to collect the 200 signatures he needed.
