Delaware College Scholars, the tuition-free summer college prep program for low-income public school students, has a new president of the board: Katherine “Katie” Wilkinson, a senior vice president at Fulton Bank.

This past June, DCS honored 25 rising college freshmen who had completed the program, a residential cohort at St. Andrew’s School in Middletown that spanned three summers, three weeks each. The program includes mentorship, relationship-building, college visits and help with financial aid and scholarships. The students, many of whom are the first in their family to attend college, are off to schools including University of Delaware, Temple University and Cornell University, this fall.

“Katie is going to be an integral part of our organization’s growth,” said Tony Alleyne, executive director of DCS. “We’re thrilled to tap into Katie’s expertise and perspective as a business leader in the community who recognizes the value stakeholder relationships can provide our scholars.”
