Schoolcraft College is on the ballot Nov. 6, 2018. The college is asking for additional funds through raising property tax values. Under the current proposal, citizens living on a property worth $100,000 would only pay an additional $24 in taxes.
For $24 or more, you could fill up your gas tank for a week or you could vote for the millage restoration to help fund Schoolcraft. Twenty-four bucks could also buy you and a friend lunch at the coveted American Harvest, or help fund the college’s programs like our prestigious Culinary Arts. For $24 or more, you could get a fancy monthly gym membership, or opt for the Fitness Center instead for free with your classes.
With $24, you can buy a beginner’s acrylic paint and brushes set, or help fund Schoolcraft to keep the creative spirit alive. Twenty-four dollars isn’t enough for an art lesson at Painting with a Twist or similar venues, but it can fund Schoolcraft so that you can continue to take affordable art classes for credit and in the continuing education department.
For $24 or less, you can buy all kinds of ridiculous things. You could buy 8 bottles of ranch, 24 of Taco Bell’s nacho fries, a Blu-ray Disc (if you even have a Blu-ray player any more), a beard apron from Amazon or you can save the college.
You can buy eight bags of Doritos, or a used video game. Instead of buying these items, come down to the student activities center and enjoy our free popcorn and free game play. With just $24, you could help save the college and keep enjoying the perks Schoolcraft provides.
For $24, you could get a ticket to the right field lower grandstand and watch the Tigers lose at Comerica Park – #EatEmUpTigers.
That money would also cover the cost and tip of getting your eyebrows threaded #EyebrowsOnFleek. You could go to Tropical Smoothie and possibly get a drink and food for less than $24? #TropSmoove #expensive Or, ya know, for $24 you could save a college.
The choice is yours.
