Congratulations to everyone who helped make the 1st Annual Ignite Competition possible, especially our amazing director, Jacob Weiss. The event raised over five thousand dollars for our community service project at Rec Park. Congratulations to all our winners and thank you to everyone who braved the snowstorm & participated!
Hope you’re all having a nice and well deserved break! As 2013 comes to a close just keep in mind all you have accomplished this year. 2013 for the PwC Scholars included a fantastic safari trip to Africa, a successful community service day at Walnut Street park, and many great events and speakers. As we look forward to 2014, we have a lot in store, including our trip to Italy in a few weeks, renovating a baseball field at Rec Park, and our continual planning for the OurSpace project. Rest up scholars, spring semester is bound to be full of difficult but rewarding challenges! Let’s see all that we can accomplish in 2014, Happy (almost) New Year!
CONGRATULATIONS! and Reminders

Mather Stover-Ling was born with spina bifida. While he doesn’t let his disability stop him, using standard playground equipment is near impossible.
Today the Scholars held their first press release to inform the community about next year’s community service project, “OurSpace”. PwC Partner Matt Singer, Binghamton’s Mayor Matt Ryan, Scholars Vice President of Fundraising Jake Weiss, and Scholars President David Schwartz spoke at the event, along with Bill Barber from Parks and Recreation and Jen O’Brien from Life is Washable Inc.. Although the details are still in the works, the scholars will be focusing on making Rec Park an accessible space for everyone.
