CRANFORD – The Union County College Foundation received a generous donation of $10,000 from the Summit Foundation (formerly the Summit Area Public Foundation) to fund scholarships for Union students. The Summit Foundation has served local communities by providing grants to address local needs for more than 50 years.
“Union students appreciate the support provided by the Summit Foundation,” stated Union County College Foundation Executive Director Doug Rouse. “The Summit Foundation works to improve the lives of those in their community and we are thankful they have chosen to support our students.”
The grant issued by the Summit Foundation will support the Union County College Foundation’s Operation Graduation program. This student success initiative was developed six years ago and has had a dramatic impact on the students at Union and has helped hundreds of students graduate on time. Over the past six years, the graduation rate at Union County College has more the quadrupled.
