Exton, PA (West Whiteland Township)—Two Saints Philip and James School students were awarded partial scholarships for the upcoming academic year. The scholarships were given through the generosity of a local business and in memory of a late longtime substitute teacher.

Philip and James School as a substitute teacher for twenty-five years. Rose Rodner-Tims and Robert Rodner, daughter and husband of Terry Rodner, presented the scholarship to DeAngelis.
These scholarships were presented to the students in SS. Philip and James Church during the closing Mass for the school. SS. Philip and James School has a long history of student scholarship winners. Earlier that week, twelve of the school’s eighth grade graduates won scholarships to various high schools in the area.
