FirstEnergy Foundation supports the I Can Swim! program

FirstEnergy Foundation recently made a gift to the I Can Swim! program. Since 2011, the I Can Swim! program has successfully served more than 2,300 children in Garrett County. The program represents a joint venture involving the Garrett College Community Aquatic and Recreation Complex (CARC), the Garrett County Board of Education, the Garrett County Board of County Commissioners, and the Garrett College Foundation.

The Garrett County Board of Education provides school bus transportation for the children to the College campus as part of their daily schedule for a four-day active learning program during the regular school week. By partnering with Garrett County schools and incorporating the I Can Swim! program into the school day, all kindergarteners have access to water safety education and lifesaving instruction.
