Per Scholas

Can we show some love to all the teachers out there? Where would we be without them? Today marked both the start of a new class in Dallas and the graduation of classes in New York. These milestones happen thanks to those committed to providing education to others. Art Pozner is an IT instructor in New York and today marks his last day (for now). Please join us in thanking Art for his service to others.

Art shared, "As a Technical Instructor I have come to know and embrace the unique mission at Per Scholas. That mission only works because of the hard working dedicated people who dedicate themselves to the organization day in and day out. It has been an honor and a pleasure to have worked with you all and to have been associated with such a great organization."
