COMMENTS FROM THE CHAIR: Chairman Bartelsmeyer read the following statement:
As your FSCC College Board of Trustees, we are committed to the College’s Core Values, which include providing
opportunities in a supportive, safe environment, and a focus on relationships and experiences that value students,
community, and employees while fostering an inclusive and diverse environment.
The actions of those who tried to intimidate FSCC students by driving through the residential area of campus with lights, flashing lights, and honking horns at midnight, September 12, is NOT reflective of this community. It is the unfortunate act of a very small group of people who do not understand the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the cultural and financial success of our college and community.
We are very fortunate at FSCC to have a supportive community. The success of FSCC is founded on the financial and expressive support given to our students and the College by our community. The tax payers of Bourbon County contribute approximately 3 million dollars in mill levied revenue to FSCC annually. We believe our success is the community’s success, and with an approximately 14.5 million dollar budget, the college has a large economic
impact on the community and is a good return on the 3 million dollar investment of tax dollars.
We are working with local law enforcement to ensure individuals whose intent is to disrupt and incite fear in our campus community will not be tolerated.
