The Bridge Educational Foundation, Chesapeake Energy and Waste Management contributed $28,000 in scholarship money to families of Beaver County to improve educational opportunities for their children, according to Senator Elder Vogel.
Senator Vogel participated in an April 3 check presentation ceremony at Sts. Peter and Paul School in Beaver. The scholarship money will also help students attending Beaver County Christian School, Divine Mercy Academy, Quigley Catholic High School and St. John the Baptist School.
The Scholarship funds are made possible through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program.
“I applaud the Bridge Education Foundation, Chesapeake Energy and Waste Management for providing this donation to these five schools through the EITC program. Their generosity makes it possible for our children to reach their academic potential,” said Senator Vogel. “This money will give new educational opportunities to families that otherwise could not afford it. It’s great to see firsthand the positive impact that the EITC program has had here in Beaver County.”
