PWHU Makes Scholarship Contribution
Members of Pennsylvania Wildlife Habitat Unlimited (PWHU) recently made their annual contribution to the organization's scholarship fund at Penn State DuBois.
Established in 2001, the Pennsylvania Wildlife Habitat Unlimited Scholarship provides financial assistance to outstanding undergraduate students enrolled in the Wildlife Technology program at Penn State DuBois. Each year, PWHU contributes $3,000 to the fund.
Three Wildlife Technology students befitted from the scholarship this year. They are Theresa Ciavarella of Altoona, Kelen Fierst of Mayport, and Nicholas Moore of Brockway.
"I'm very grateful for this scholarship," said Ciavarella. "Any money we can get to help pay tuition is a big help; I live on my own, so it can be tough."
PWHU is a non-profit, volunteer organization based in DuBois. They are made up of local outdoors enthusiasts, environmentalists, and sportsmen and sportswomen. According to PWHU members, the organization was created in 1985 with the sole purpose of improving and creating wildlife habitat.
