Where we live: Depew


The Depew High School Academy of Finance has received a $13,800 grant from the Discover Pathway to Financial Success Grant program.

The money will be used to buy a class set of Microsoft Surface Pros, a color printer, toner and jump drives.

The academy program began in September with 14 students and provides opportunities to learn about business with financial course work and interaction with local business leaders.
