Wilkes University


This room is dedicated to the memory of settlers from Poland who since 1856 have made their homes in Wyoming Valley

By their efforts they contributed to the development of its major industries mining and farming.

By their sense of fair play they encouraged the principle of collective bargaining through their homes, schools, and churches they have proclaimed their faith and love of country.

This plaque is erected by their descendants so that their sons and daughters, together with the sons and daughters of those from other lands may take courage from their lives and deeds, and forever be reminded in these halls of Wilkes University that opportunity, wisdom, and justice are for all Americans.
