Manor College offering some free summer courses

Manor College announced a new summer program that allows eligible students to take courses with no tuition cost associated. 

“This program is a positive experience with great upside for students looking to catch up or get ahead in their college education,” said Joseph Gillespie, Manor College Provost.

The Summer Scholars Program is designed to provide a pathway for eligible returning students to take select summer courses at Manor with no tuition cost. This enables them to continue their academic studies at Manor in future semesters. 

The first years of the program will be funded starting with support from Manor College Board of Trustees member James Nevels and his wife, Lourene; Independence Blue Cross, as well as a personal gift from its president and CEO, Gregory Deavens, and his wife, Beverly. Future years will be funded by Board of Trustees members Leslie Turner and Robert Orsher. 

“Beverly and I are very pleased to support the educational journey of Manor College students through the Summer Scholars Program,” said Deavens, who was the Manor College 2024 Commencement Orator and received an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters at the ceremony. “My parents were first-generation college graduates, and Beverly is a lifelong learner who completed her college degree as an adult, so we understand the special challenges that many Manor students face, as well as the rich rewards of completing the journey.” 

Nevels added, “Lourene and I have been longtime supporters of Manor College. We have seen how Manor changes lives, and this summer program takes their efforts to new heights. We look forward to great accomplishments from our students.” 

“We’re incredibly blessed by the support Gregory Deavens, James Nevels, Leslie Turner and Dr. Robert Orsher and their families have given to our students,” Manor College President Jonathan Peri said. “Providing students with classes for no tuition cost aligns with Manor’s commitment to helping students who need it the most.” ••
