MMI Preparatory School recently received a $2,000 contribution from Miners Bank, a division of Mid Penn Bank, toward the school’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Scholarship program.
“Miners Bank is a valuable member of the local community and we are excited to partner more closely with the Mid Penn Bank family. MMI is honored to accept their first contribution toward our EITC program in 2015,” MMI Head of School Thomas G. Hood said. “This gift will help a student receive the education that he or she needs to maximize their potential in preparation for success.”
“We are pleased to be able to support MMI Preparatory School through the EITC program,” said Mid Penn Bank commercial loan officer Luci Kulish. “By providing students with a solid foundation to prepare them for the future, MMI continues to prove that it is an integral member of our community.”
MMI has received nearly $2.7 million in EITC scholarship funds since 2005. Pennsylvania is one of only a few states in the nation that offers the EITC program, which gives tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to a scholarship organization.
