Wissahickon Opportunity Scholarship Recipient: Nia Murray

Congratulations to Senior Nia Murray, this year’s recipient of the Wissahickon Opportunity Scholarship. The scholarship provides one deserving student from WHS a full four-year scholarship to attend Gwynedd Mercy University as an Early Education major and then return to #WissNation as a K-4 teacher. The scholarship was made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous donor, and funding provided by Gwynedd Mercy University.

“The benefits of this program cannot be overstated. Not only will GMercyU welcome a motivated, talented and diverse candidate like Nia, but the Wissahickon Schools will benefit from the inspired alumna coming back home to teach and serve,” said GMercyU President Deanne H. D'Emilio.

Nia said she is excited to return to Wissahickon to help diversify the teaching staff, noting the many benefits of having a teaching staff that mirrors the demographics of the school’s student body.
