PADE is a statewide professional, non-profit, educational organization addressing the needs and interests of developmental educators from every type of postsecondary institution in the state.

The Wilkes students to receive the scholarship are Megan Oakley of Dunmore, Pa., a sophomore nursing major, and Shyanne Wydo of Hanover Twp., Pa., a sophomore psychology major. The students are participants in the Act 101 Program at Wilkes.

The Act 101 Program enhances the educational opportunities and achievements of undergraduate students, who are first-generation students and Pennsylvania residents. It also provides educational support services that allow students to earn a college degree.
