The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber, in conjunction with Penn State Wilkes-Barre, are proud to present the Wilkes-Barre Connect Student Series: Break the Barre-ier. Made possible by the Invent Penn State Initiative, and developed by Penn State Wilkes-Barre students in their BA 321 class, the new series was designed by students for students, teaching beneficial entrepreneurial skills to emerging business professionals. The event series was the result of a class project challenge, which asked students to design an event or program which would link the academic and business community in a beneficial way. Students pitched their event ideas on the last day of class, and the winning group was able to work with Penn State Wilkes-Barre and the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce to turn their idea into a reality.
