John A. Logan College To Stop Paying Athlete Housing

The John A. Logan Board of Trustees has voted to end funding for athlete student housing. The decision was made at a meeting on Tuesday. By the 2017-18 School year, $150,000 will be removed from the general fund that pays for student athletes’ on-campus accommodations The move is part of the college’s new $34.3 million dollar budget proposed in June, which officials believe will turn a $3.6 million shortfall into a surplus of almost $9,800.
