Statement on the Announcement of the Kilian Community College Closing

The senior leadership of LSS (Lutheran Social Services of South Dakota) was shocked and saddened to learn this morning of the decision of the Kilian Community College’s Board of Trustees to cease operations effective May 31, 2016. LSS looked forward to developing a strategic alliance with Kilian to further enhance workforce development within the Sioux Falls region. “We are sorry to see Sioux Falls lose an educational opportunity for the non-traditional students which Kilian has served so well for the past 38 years,” said Betty Oldenkamp, LSS President/CEO. “Workforce development continues to be a priority for LSS, and we will certainly continue our efforts in that area.” LSS is assessing the impact of this news on its building plans and forthcoming capital campaign.
