St. John Neumann School receives $50,000 donation
Support continues to pour in for St. John Neumann Regional School.
Recently, the school was the recipient of a $50,000 donation, as announced by Principal Sister Virginia Stephanie.
With regard to the grant, Sister Stephanie said "this generous donation will underwrite the technology program, tuition aid, while supporting the foreign language and arts programs."
Edgar Webber, President of the School Advisory Board, added "the word is out that St. John Neumann Regional School is a valuable asset to our community."
In June, the school received a $25,000 Challenge Grant courtesy of the Julius & Katheryn Hommer Foundation.
That grant - which the school has received four straight years - was used to help defray operating costs, as well as to encourage others to support the school.
St. John Neumann Regional School is fully accredited by the Commonwealth on Elementary Schools of the Middle States Association of Colleges & Schools. It welcomes students of all religious denominations and ethnic groups.
Pupils in grades K-3 attend the school's Slatington campus, while students in grades 4-8 attend its Palmerton campus.
