This petition had 361 supporters

Statistics show that arts education is important in life, and anyone who has been an Iowa Western Community College theatre production has seen the amazing, and now nationally recognized art that the students and the incredible instructor Shea Saladee put forth every semester.  “The Dean of the Arts.” has elected to eliminate her as our teacher for all her classes for no concrete reason. (Acting 1, movement theory, stagecraft, Acting 2, and more.) By losing one of the most vital teachers in our theatre department, and cutting out budget multiple times they have more than stated that they don't care. Not only will this affect present students, but it will affect the prospective theatre students at Iowa western, the department itself, and our careers as aspiring actors, designers, and tech majors. I have started this petition to keep Shea as our teacher and to assure that the department will remain safe and untouched. Therefore, we call on arts supporters everywhere to aid a department that is very much endanger by signing and sharing this petition.
