Wilkes-Barre, PA, March 11, 2019 – Alana Roberts, Regional Affairs Director for PPL Electric Utilities, recently visited King’s College campus to present a check for $3,000 to Rev. John Ryan, C.S.C., President of King’s College, in support of its McGowan Hispanic Outreach Summer Residential Enrichment Program. PPL donated to King’s as part of the state’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program, which is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.
King’s College will utilize the funds to provide on-campus experiences for Latino high school students through its McGowan Hispanic Outreach Summer Residential Enrichment Program, which offers an early introduction to what it is like to be a full-time college student. This three-week long program allows students to participate in a schedule of course work including English, Mathematics, Science, Mass Communications, and Leadership, which are taught by King’s professors in smart classrooms and science laboratories.
