Pennsylvania College of Technology recently confirmed the elimination of 19 full-time positions and decided not to fill 46 other positions that have been vacant the past year.
The moves are meant to help the college meet budget demands and keep tuition costs under control.
The college is struggling with stagnant state funding, decreasing enrollment and a 20-percent in health care costs.
So tough decisions had to be made and we salute the college's decision in making the choices they made, choices that will save the school more than $4.5 million.
In an age when many schools simply raise tuitions to balance budgets, the school took the tougher, more personally painful route.
