The Sunday Business Page
This Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’s “The Sunday Business Page”, with KDKA-TV’s Money & Politics Editor Jon Delano:
A special, holiday weekend broadcast.
Good news, at year’s end, for parochial students in the Diocese of Pittsburgh, who want to attend college, which has become astronomically expensive:
This past week, Pittsburgh’s Carlow University and the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh announced that they will award a Catholic education university grant of as much as $20,000 – for each, qualified student who has completed a Catholic school education, within the Diocese. Students who have been enrolled in Catholic schools from grade school through high school, will receive the maximum grant.
Carlow’s President – Suzanne K. Mellon, Ph.D. – has the exciting details. This is a segment that could change thousands of lives, and open the doors of higher education, to worthy students.
Then, we’ll talk with the Artistic Director of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre — Terrence S. Orr – about the upcoming production of “The Nutcracker”, at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts, in Downtown Pittsburgh. Orr also guides us to the safest way to purchase legitimate tickets to Pittsburgh Ballet performances, as some members of the audience could become victims of ticket scalping, by illegitimate sellers.
Finally, we’ll talk with Adam Haas – Interpretive Specialist with Phipps Conservatory and Botanic Gardens – about their impressive winter show – “Deck the Halls, Here We Glow, Pittsburgh” – running through January 10th. It’s a combination of colorful lighting and beautiful floral offerings, to celebrate the beauty and meaning of this special time of year.
Please join Jon Delano – Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m. – for “The Sunday Business Page” – on KDKA-TV.
