The Somerset Trust Company has donated $20,000 in Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Funds to Pennsylvania Highlands Community College to help fund the Accelerated College Education Program (ACE). The ACE Program gives high school students an opportunity to earn college credits while taking classes at their local high school.
“Somerset Trust is a valued partner in our efforts to keep these educational opportunities available and affordable for our students.” said College President Dr. Walter Asonevich. “This program continues to grow every year due to the support of businesses such as Somerset Trust.”
During the 2012-13 academic year, the ACE Program served over 1,600 students in 45 school districts stretching 10 counties.
