Time to SHINE in Luzerne County: New Program Excites Students


Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County — The future looks bright for students who are part of a new after school and summer program.

Luzerne County SHINE was spearheaded by Congressman Lou Barletta and State Senator John Yudichak with help from Wilkes University.

Interim Director Jeanne Miller said the curriculum will focus on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.

The program was made possible thanks to over $1-million in funding from grants and donations.

Miller said SHINE has been a huge success in Carbon and Schuylkill counties with a 92% increase in school attendance.

Luzerne County SHINE begins this fall in the Wilkes-Barre Area, Hazleton Area, Hanover Area, Greater Nanticoke Area, and Wyoming Valley West school districts.
