Building Pride/Building Character with PPS Students

Thanks to contributions from 11 corporations through the State’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC), PHLF is involving 12 Pittsburgh Public Schools in its “Building Pride/Building Character” program of field trips, art activities, and book-publishing projects this January through June.

In April, students from Pittsburgh West Liberty and Pittsburgh Phillips participated in a PHLF tour aboard Molly’s Trolleys to the City-County Building, Courthouse, Fort Pitt Museum, Fort Pitt Block House, and Duquesne Incline. (Trolley tours are scheduled for 10 more schools in May.) Students from Pittsburgh Beechwood learned about the art of stained glass during an April tour of six buildings in downtown Pittsburgh.

We thank the following corporations for contributing to PHLF in 2012 through the EITC program: Huntington Bank, PNC Bank, BNY Mellon, Allegheny Technologies Incorporated, Frank B. Fuhrer Wholesale Company, ESB Bank, UPMC, Eat’n Park Hospitality Group, Inc., Hefren-Tillotson, Inc., Maher Duessel, CPA, and Bridges & Company, Inc.
