FirstEnergy Foundation makes gift to I Can Swim!

FirstEnergy Foundation recently made a gift to the I Can Swim! program. Pictured is Donald Beatty, manager, external affairs at FirstEnergy, presenting a check to Cherie Krug, executive director of the Garrett College Foundation, in support of the I Can Swim! program.

Through a partnership with Garrett College, the Garrett College Community Aquatic & Recreation Complex, the Garrett County Board of Education, the Board of County Commissioners, and the Garrett College Foundation, the I Can Swim! program has successfully served more than 1,900 children since 2011.

The program, which is free for all children, costs more than $125.00 per child for the week-long water safety sessions, and has grown to include opportunities for Garrett County sixth grade students, along with the fifth grade College & Me participants.

For more information on the I Can Swim! program, persons may contact the Garrett College Foundation at 301-387-3086.
