Keystone College has received two awards totaling $17,500 from the Williams Atlantic Sunrise community grant project.
Of the total amount, $10,000 will be used for the installation of additional fencing on the recently opened Trolley Trail, a 1.5 mile hiking trail on Keystone’s Woodlands Campus. An additional $7,500 will be used for an Energy Industry Scholarship at the college.

“Keystone College is extremely grateful to receive this William Atlantic Sunrise Community Grant,” said Keystone College President David L. Coppola, Ph.D. “The funding for scholarships will enable us to continue to educate our students and prepare them for valuable careers after earning their Keystone degrees. This contribution will also enable us to install additional fencing along a section of the recently opened Trolley Trail hiking trail on campus. We extend our sincere thanks to Williams for being such a valued community partner.”
Keystone is one of 35 Pennsylvania organizations that will receive a total of $292,834 in funding this spring through Williams’ bi-annual community grant program. Other recipients include fire departments, schools, parks, and municipalities.
The Trolley Trail is a partnership between the Countryside Conservancy and the Keystone College Environmental Education Institute. The project is a critical piece of the Countryside Conservancy’s envisioned 14-mile Trolley Trail, a public hiking and biking trail that follows the abandoned Northern Electric Railroad Line.
