Panamanian Students to Perform at the Farmers Market

Support our Panamanian students and learn about the rich culture of Panama at their performance at the Wilkes-Barre Farmers Market bandshell from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20. 

Wilkes University’s Ministry of Education Bilingual Panama Program provides English and professional education to Panamanian teachers. Wilkes is one of only a few schools in the United States that participates in this international outreach program.  Started in 2016, nine cohorts have participated in this cultural exchange that successfully brings two countries together as one with the goal to share in each other’s language, customs and people.
