The Pittsburgh Promise – good news for students

cathederaloflearning1Starting with the class of 2009, scholarships awarded from The Pittsburgh Promise will be usable at over 100 more schools statewide. This is a major change from Promise money only being available to students attending within Allegheny county.

SWB has always supported the idea of The Pittsburgh Promise because it gives a better educational opportunities to students who maybe would not have attended college or even trade schools due to cost. This is one of the more positive ways the city is supporting it’s families.

Check out the reference article from The Post-Gazette.

PS – It’s amazing what a student can do hen you give them a chance …. if you are a business, SWB kindly asks you to donate to The Pittsburgh Promise.
