CORNING, N.Y. (WETM) – Allstate Foundation Helping Hands provided a grant to SUNY Corning Community College to create extra educational opportunities in order to promote “optimal living.”
The grant was requested by members of the Philosophy of Optimal Living Club. Allstate Agency Owner Ralph Sutter, from Horseheads, supported the grant.
“Optimal living could be defined as living ‘the good life,’” said Austin Wallenbeck, SUNY CCC student and club member. “As life requires that we ration our finite time and resources, we must learn to find a balance between the minimization of costs and maximization of benefits.”
The club is will likely use the money for educational travel.
“I am happy to support these students,” said Sutter. “It’s an opportunity for them to better themselves and to expand their horizons. That is always a worthy endeavor.”
