Parkway Alumni Association awards 282 dream grants to Parkway students

Claymont’s Alex Nozka, Brandon Yu and Ryan Mound celebrated their grant awards for zoo keeping, Web design and science camp.
Art camp is the dream of Amanda Matteucci, who attends South Middle School.
Patrick Broyles at West High gladly accepts his award to explore his dream to shadow an architect.

Another year of dreams has been made possible for some enterprising Parkway students!

The Parkway Alumni Association’s Granting Dreams program is designed to turn dreams into realities for Parkway students who are eager to further their learning or explore new opportunities.  Grants of financial support of up to $250 are awarded, as well as grants of community resources and/or alumni support.  Students are encouraged to submit requests that demonstrate a commitment to furthering skills, acquiring knowledge or experience, participating in school-related activities, or those that involve the community.

This year, monetary grants totaling $19,600 and 61 resource grants were awarded, to equal a total of 282 grants.

The PAA has awarded more than $156,000 in monetary grants and 247 resource grants since 1996.

Mimi Holder, chairperson of the Granting Dreams Committee says, “When students meet success in one area of their lives, the thrill of accomplishment carries over into other areas and becomes a motivating factor in their education. This application challenges students to figure out what steps it will take to make their dream a reality.”
