5-6-20 private college closing for good in part due to coronavirus

A private Catholic college in Manitowoc says it will close for good, citing in part the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.  Holy Family College, formerly known as Silver Lake College, will lay off employees in June and eliminate any remaining jobs by the end of August.  The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sponsored Ministries announced the decision on Monday. Leaders say enrollment and fundraising challenges were made more difficult with COVID-19.  The college, founded in 1935, has about 360 students enrolled in the spring semester.   A limited number of already scheduled summer term classes will be offered to allow students to complete their degree requirements.
