NEWFOUNDLAND - The PPL foundation helped support the Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance SHINE Program through a donation of $50,000. Alana Roberts, the regional affairs director stated: “PPL is proud to support the SHINE program in Wayne County. Building a strong foundation is critical to the success of today’s students. SHINE offers incredible opportunities for students to participate in high quality after-school programming that has a successful track record of increasing student achievement, increasing student engagement and helping students focus on career preparation, especially in the areas of STEM.”
The SHINE afterschool program provides project-based activities on in-demand careers with an emphasis on STEM and real-life educational experiences and focuses on students who need a jump-start in reading and math.
