WELLS — In acknowledgement of the unprecedented challenges that area high school students have had to overcome in the past year, York County Community College is announcing the York County ‘21 Promise, a full tuition scholarship for high school seniors that have participated in the college’s dual program or have taken concurrent courses at the college.

According to York County Community College President Michael Fischer, “Helping others overcome obstacles is what YCCC is all about. In fact, our purpose is to inspire and empower our students and communities to thrive. As the region’s educational partner, YCCC is committed to helping the region’s economic recovery, and the York County Promise is just one way in which we are extending economic relief to graduating seniors intending to pursue higher education.”

Through the York County Promise, eligible York County High School and homeschooled students of the class of ‘21 who took dual or concurrent classes at the college, will receive two years of free tuition, fees, books and required supplies.

As an extension of their Find the Fearless You institutional call to action, the college will also begin a series of initiative announcements to be published on its social media channels every Friday. The announcements began  March, 19. The Fearless Friday announcements will highlight enhanced student-focused offerings, workforce training opportunities and other programs that will benefit their student population and the community at large.

Both the York County ’21 Promise program and the series of Fearless Friday initiatives represent the college’s ongoing commitment to fulfill its role as the community destination to Find the Fearless You.
