Messiah’s Hoverter Course celebrates its largest graduation

March 31st, 2009

Eleven adults will graduate from the Hoverter Course, a college-level program in the humanities earning graduates three Messiah College credits.

Participants have been taking courses at the College’s Harrisburg Institute for seven months. The program is sponsored by the College’s Center for Public Humanities.

The graduates are economically or educationally disadvantaged Harrisburg area residents with a high school diploma or GED whose circumstances have prevented them from considering a college education. They have completed 110 hours of instruction in the disciplines of writing, communication, critical/ethical thinking, creative arts, and history/civics.

In addition to free instruction, Messiah provides participants with books and instructional materials as well as transportation and childcare, as needed.

The College began the Hoverter Course in rural Perry County. In 2008, the classes were moved to downtown Harrisburg where interest in the program was much greater. The program is funded through a generous grant from the Hoverter Foundation.
