Penn Trafford Scholarship Foundation

Hello family, friends and clients,

The board of Penn Trafford Scholarship Foundation and the Penn Township Business Association has decided to bring the Education in Excellence in house. Our goal is to utilize local small businesses in the Penn Township area. In the previous 5 years, it was sponsored by the Norwin Chamber and was held at Statigo’s. We hope to continue the successful program within the Penn Trafford Community.

The Board and Tony Aquilio (Penn Trafford High School Principal) have locked in a date for our 6th annual Penn-Trafford High School Excellence in Education Program. It will be held Monday, May 15, 2017 at Nicassio Fields. The first five years were a wonderful success and most of you have been a sponsor during that time. For those of you that have not been a part of the event, I will give you some background. I have attached a pdf of the flier.

This event is to honor the top 20 or 5% of the graduating students of Penn-Trafford. The fee for a sponsorship is $75 and has remained unchanged. Your sponsorship includes: lunch for the sponsor (you), price of the student’s lunch and a gift for the student and mention in the program and in the Power Point Presentation. Six years ago, I approached Debra Kolonay (former Superintendent) and Scott Inglese to bring this program to the district.  It was an easy sell and they were both on board.  It has been a privilege working with the school to honor these exceptional students in our District and I hope you feel the same and agree to help.

My job is to secure 75 sponsors. You may do it as an individual or business. Please do not think because you are not in business you cannot be a sponsor; we have many individual sponsors. If you don’t own a business, maybe your employer would be interested in sponsoring. For Businesses: we would like pictures of the owners and\or the company’s logo or if you are an individual sponsor: a picture of the family or we can just put you family name on the power point presentation.

If you are interested, please let me know ASAP. You can make checks payable to the Penn Trafford Scholarship Foundation. Send to Penn Trafford Scholarship EIE, PO Box 303, Harrison City, PA 15636. Be aware, this address is different than what’s on the flyer. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me.
