Thank you to Dr. Joyce Miller, CEO of Northwest Institute of Research!  Dr. Miller climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in June in an effort to raise awareness about high quality early childhood education and to fund raise for Erie’s Future Fund scholarships.  Along with the $10,000 donation from the Northwest Institute of Research and fundraising, Joyce was able to raise $18,100 for Erie’s Future Fund scholarships!  Thank you, Joyce, for your efforts to help our children “climb” to success!
