WESTFALL - Delaware Valley High School was the first high school in America to have the opportunity to pilot Penn State University’s “Introduction to Entrepreneurship” course. In the fall of 2004, Dr. Thomas Finan, director of secondary education and Mrs. Gina Vives, director of technology, met with Dr. Anthony Warren, director of the Farrell Center for Corporate Innovation at Penn State University to arrange the collaborative effort. The program at Delaware Valley, which has been offered every year since the meeting, offers students the opportunity to utilize problem-based learning and real world situations to create their own businesses. Miss Nicole Matz, the instructor of the course at Delaware Valley, has continued to work very closely with Dr. Warren in order to enrich the program. Penn State was recently listed as the hottest school for entrepreneurs according to Newsweek/Kaplan’s production of the “America’s Hottest Colleges” and will continue to offer innovative programs statewide.
