Posted on April 12th, 2017 | by Charlene Decker |

WVMS recently received an EITC contribution in the amount of $19,746 from the United Way of Wyoming Valley.  The EITC scholarship program is a highly innovative program which affords scholarship monies for Pennsylvania’s lower and middle class families through the direct engagement of businesses in the educational process, by providing the funding for scholarships in exchange for state tax credits.

The EITC program has proven a tremendously successful partnership, awarding more than 450,000 scholarships worth $550,000 million over the past sixteen years.  Pictured below at the check presentation are: Dennis Puhalla , Head of School and Jennifer Pugh Deemer, Vice President of Community Impact for the United Way of Wyoming Valley.
