Avonworth High School has earned a designation from The Pennsylvania National Guard Association as a Guard Friendly High School. This means that the school uses the best practices for recruiting, information-sharing, and group formation for the PA National Guard.
With a total tuition benefit exceeding $72,000, the Pennsylvania National Guard has the strongest state tuition benefit in the nation. Guard members can get college, university, and trade school degrees.
Kathleen Fabrizi, Executive Director, PNGAS and Pennsylvania National Guard Foundation says,
“We are very confident the designation, PNGAS Guard-Friendly High School, will produce immediate and long-term benefits and synergies for students, faculty, alumni, Guard-members, veterans, their spouses, families, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and its economy.”
As state and national emergencies and global warfare become increasingly sophisticated, technology-driven, and complex; having a well-trained, and educated Guard force is more strategic and valuable than ever.
