Layoffs Announced At LPTS

Eight staff members will be laid off at the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
President Dean K. Thompson announced the layoffs and an across the board salary freeze in a letter to faculty, staff and students Tuesday.
In February, the seminary made other cuts, which included capital spending reductions, a 6% cut to department expenses and a freeze on the cost of living adjustment.
In a statement to the press, Thompson said layoffs were a last resort to balance the budget.
