Argon ST donates funds to help local children participate in Kids in College

7/21/2010 —
Argon ST in Smithfield, Pa., recently donated $1,000 in scholarship funds to the Kids in College program at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, which enabled more than 20 local children, grades K through 6, to participate in the program this month.

Tuition for the Kids in College program is $55 per student, per class. Because of the funding, two area community groups, Private Industry Council and Dads Matter, were able to enroll an additional group of children who may not have otherwise been able to attend.

Argon ST’s mission focuses on supporting charities that have an immediate impact on the community. By providing this special funding to the Kids in College program, the Private Industry Council and Dads Matter were able to provide education opportunities to area youth.  Some of the activities the children are participating in include “Creative Cooking,” “Mystery Adventures” and “Severe Weather Alert.” Kids in College is a program offered each summer at the Fayette campus to provide fun, interactive educational experiences for area youth.
