SEEDA and Forward Sheridan Continue to Work On Possible Partnership

The Sheridan Economic and Education Development Authority is comprised of representatives from Sheridan College, School District 2 and the City of Sheridan. Now that their chief goal of overseeing the construction of the Hand in Hand Early Childhood Education Center is complete, they are looking to form a partnership with Forward Sheridan.

Vice President of Enrollment Services at Sheridan College, Mark Englert, is one of two representatives from the college that sits on the SEEDA Joint Powers Board. Englert says that the possible partnership between SEEDA and Forward Sheridan is a win-win situation for everybody, since economic development and education go -- well -- hand-in-hand.

Englert said that they hope to solidify the partnership soon so that they can start looking at projects that would benefit the community.
