At the February monthly meeting of the Ridgway Township Supervisors, the Tri-county Rails to Trails Club and Northern Pennsylvania Regional College gave short presentations on their recent activities.
The Supervisors agreed to support the Tri-county Rails' efforts to Trails Club to seek a grant for a feasibility study into an extension of the Clarion Little Toby Trail up the west side of the Clarion River into Johnsonburg. Along with a letter of support, the Supervisors authorized the donation of $2,500 in matching funds to a DCNR (Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources) application for grant funding. Rails to Trails members Jane Bryndel, Aimee Kemick, and Bob Imhof were on hand to lend support and answer questions from the supervisors.
Lauren Zickefoose, the Student Success Specialist of Northern Pennsylvania Regional College (NPRC), has been making the rounds of meetings this week, joining the Zoom meeting of the Ridgway Borough Council on Monday and the Ridgway Township Supervisors on Tuesday. She introduced the Supervisors to the programs of NPRC, which does not operate as a traditional campus-based college or an online college. In order to offer a convenient and affordable college experience for students, community locations are utilized across a nine-county region to deliver class instruction at multiple sites across the area and brought together via live interactive technology.
