Two College Presidents Praise College Match at White House Summit on College Access

College Match was singled out by two College Presidents last week as one of the nation's top college access organizations in conjunction with the White House Summit on College Access.

The President of Franklin & Marshall, Dan Porterfield, said "Every year, College Match launches dozens of outstanding students to college success at Franklin & Marshall College and many other great institutions. The powerful impact of the more than 20 College Match students at F&M has been extraordinary. I love the program and its students."

In addition, the President of Bryn Mawr, Kim Cassidy, was interviewed on NPR prior to the Summit and mentioned two college access organizations--one of which was College Match.
