As an MSU Billings student, I feel very passionately about affordable higher education for all Montanans. My husband and I are both attending college, and thanks to the 6-mill levy, we are able to afford being a two-student household. For us, education is the key to our futures, and we are taking on a large amount of debt to be able to pursue our passions. Without the levy, tuition could increase by 17 percent, leaving my husband and I with the tough decision of who gets to keep pursuing an education.
The 6-mill levy has passed for the last 70 years because Montanans understand the importance of investing in education. Let’s keep the tradition going. Please join me in voting yes to the 6-mill levy this November so that higher education in Montana can remain affordable and attainable for all students.
