Webster Staff Supporting College Bound STL

March 14, 2018

The Webster Staff Alliance invites everyone to consider joining its annual fundraiser to support a charitable cause. Instead of soliciting donations at the December luncheon, WSA has created an on-going campaign to support College Bound STL, which works with each of their students for up to seven years to help finish high school, matriculate into college, and persist to the award of a bachelor degree. About 90% of these students are the first in their families to earn a degree. You can donate online or during lunch at WSA Professional Development Day.
