There are only 6 fee waivers available for this test so first come first served if eligible.
Milky Way Farms will be hiring for the summer and next school year. We are seeking a high school student (male or female) interested in working at the store/restaurant.
It is the perfect job for a student. The need would be for after school employment and on Saturdays. A student gets a very wide variety of experiences working at our store, but finishes the job early enough to attend school functions and to keep up with their school work.
Job applications can be picked up at our store.
If you have any question, please don’t hesitate to call.

Representative Tom Marino, Pennsylvania’s 10th
Welcome back, to the 2016/2017 school year! I hope that you’re settling in and had a great summer break. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of my upcoming deadline for congressional nominations to service academies. If you know a qualified young man or woman interested in serving in the Armed Forces, please encourage them to apply to a U.S. Military Service Academy. Each year I have the honor of nominating a number of young Pennsylvanians for this opportunity.
Students interested in applying to any service academy should first go to my website (https://marino.house.gov/services/military-academy-nominations) and complete the academy nomination application form. Once all necessary information is compiled and completed, students can send their applications to my Lake Ariel Constituent Service Center provided below.
ATTN: 10th District Service Academy Nomination Board, located at 543 Easton Turnpike, Suite 101, Lake Ariel, PA, 18436.
ALL APPLICATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED AND POST-MARKED NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 15, 2016.
Students will be notified in mid-November regarding an interview date. If you or any of your students have additional questions about the nomination process, please feel free to contact Tom Cahill in my Lake Ariel office at (570) 689-6024 or at email@example.com.
Our Fall 2017 Application is now open! Students applying to Pitt should be prepared to submit our online application, Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) or official high school transcript, $45 application fee, and SAT/ACT scores. Students will also have the option to submit responses to the Short Answer Questions. It is highly recommended that students complete the optional Short Answer Questions, and it is now mandatory for anyone who would like to be considered for academic scholarships.
Admissions and scholarship decisions are made on a rolling basis, so it is in a student’s best interest to apply early. The Scholarship Committee begins reviewing candidates and awarding scholarships in late October. The deadline to apply in order to be automatically considered for scholarships is December 15. Please note that this is one month earlier than in the past.
Additionally, students who are interested in the highly competitive Medicine Guaranteed Admissions Program must apply by November 15, and those interested in the Physician Assistant Guarantee must apply by December 1. Our Guaranteed Admissions programs are unique and encourage advanced education for personal and professional success.
The University of Pittsburgh will accept applications via the Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success once we’ve successfully launched the new platform in August. There is no benefit for students who complete either the Pitt application or the Coalition application. And don’t forget, students who visit Pitt this summer will receive an application fee waiver.
