UNITED WAY CONTRIBUTES TO MONTESSORI SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM-The Wyoming Valley Montessori School in Kingston, Pennsylvania recently received an EITC contribution in the amount of $18,346.00 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 350,000 scholarships worth $400,000 million over the past fourteen years.
