Misericordia University Holds Mother’s Day Brunch for Students Who Are Single Parents

DALLAS TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Single mothers were toasted Sunday at the Misericordia University champagne brunch in Luzerne County.

More than 200 people came out to support a scholarship that benefits single mothers.

It provides financial aid to single moms while they earn a bachelor's degree at the university.

The goal is to help the women graduate with a small amount of debt and a whole lot of pride.

"She's gonna see me actually graduate and have my degree, and those are things that she can look forward to in her own life, and she doesn't have to worry about it not being an option like I did," said Misericordia junior Stephanie Pagan.

Misericordia University provides housing for up to 16 families enrolled in the program.
