First National Bank Continues College Prep Grant
The goal of the program is to educate students in rural Southeast Alaska
For the sixth consecutive year, First National Bank Alaska has supported the Getting Ready for College program at the University of Alaska Southeast with a gift of $26,000. The goal of the program is to educate students (grades 5-12) in rural Southeast Alaska on the positive lifetime economic impact of continuing their education past high school. The program strives to help students prepare for success after high school by providing training and resources to students, their families and local education professionals. In 2011, UAS staff delivered the program to more than 1,500 students located in 17 communities throughout Southeast. This year the program will be extended to include Bethel.
