Cresson, Pa. – First National Bank recently donated $6,000 to Mount Aloysius College via the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. The donation will go towards the College’s dual enrollment program.

Mount Aloysius College’s dual enrollment program offers high school students the opportunity to take reduced-tuition courses for college credit at their high school. These courses allow students to enter college a step ahead, with credits already on their transcripts, so they can better explore their interests or graduate early.

“We are thankful to First National Bank for their generous gift and commitment to Mount Aloysius College students,” said Dr. John Farkas, Vice President for Institutional Advancement for Mount Aloysius. “The dual enrollment program provides a unique education opportunity for local high school students, and students interested in any major can benefit from this program.”
