SHAMOKIN - Luzerne County Community College (LCCC) President Tom Leary met recently with Our Lady of Lourdes Regional students while visiting the local campus.

He met with students who participate in the Young Scholars Program to explain the advantages of attending LCCC, the transfer process of credits they have already earned while in high school, and the articulation program which, in many chosen fields, allows them to transfer as juniors to a baccalaureate program after completing an associate degree program at the community college.

"These students have been an asset to our campus and it has allowed them to experience college life," said Nicole Edmonson, LCCC Northumberland County site director. "The early college program is not only affordable for high school students, but there is the added bonus of utilizing the Goldman Sachs Scholarship, further decreasing student costs."
