Somerset Trust Company Donates $10,000 To The College’s FoundationPosted February 1, 2022 at 8:37 am
Dr. Steve Nunez, College President, and Kathy Morrell, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement, recently accepted a generous donation of $10,000 from Somerset Trust Company. The donation was presented by Mr. John Kubinsky, Vice President/Commercial Credit Officer at Somerset Trust Company.
Mr. Kubinsky is a valued board member of the Penn Highlands Community College Foundation and actively serves on its Governance Committee. The $10,000 donation was given to support the College Foundation’s Annual Giving Campaign, which funds student scholarships and student emergencies, as well as individual program and classroom needs.
The Foundation’s Annual Giving Campaign kicked off in December 2021 with a goal of raising over $30,000 to support scholarships, the student emergency fund, and faculty development. This campaign also helps to offset the College’s overall budget, in turn assisting with keeping tuition affordable for Penn Highlands Community College students.
“We are incredibly lucky to have such a valued partner in Somerset Trust Company,” stated Kathy Morrell, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement. “We share the same value and commitment to our community through education, which accelerates economic growth. Their annual commitment to all our fundraising events is unwavering, and we are extremely appreciative of their continued support of the Penn Highlands Community College Foundation.”
The Penn Highlands Annual Giving Campaign will be raising funds through June of 2022. For more information or to donate, please click here.
