What Local Residents Say:

"To thrive, local businesses need great employees. A local community college will provide a steady stream of trained workers, helping local businesses grow." --- Mario Hernandez, President of Teton Toyota & Teton Volkswagen

"With increased automation, good jobs will go to those with strong skills. If we don’t provide an affordable way to get education locally, many will find themselves on the sideline when it comes to good jobs.” --- Dr. John Liljenquist

"A community college will save local students and their families significant money. Tuition at the new College of Eastern Idaho will be significantly lower than elsewhere in the region." --- Doug Crabtree CEO, EIRMC

"I think creating a community college is the highest priority for our community. If there is one thing we could do to improve and advance our community, this would be it." -- Joseph Groberg, former Idaho Falls City Councilmember

Citizens for Affordable Higher Education is the local, Bonneville County campaign committee made of local business and community people dedicated to converting EITC into a community college.
