They May Not Have Won the Super Bowl…
…but the Pittsburgh Steelers are winning in their community!
If you’re a student at the Pittsburgh Promise, this is what you can look forward to:
“Every ninth-grader gets invited to Heinz Field for a pep talk by Pittsburgh Steelers coachMike Tomlin. And because ninth grade is a make-or-break point for many students, a Promise Readiness Corps meets daily to make sure no one falls through the cracks.”‘
Those are two great services provided by the Pittsburgh Promise, a coordinated scholarship program backed by the Pittsburgh Foundation, Pittsburgh Public Schools, community members, and other supporters, whose ranks include, it seems, the Pittburgh Steelers!
