Congratulations to team member Anthony Melf, Career Advisor/Instructor who works out of our Wilkes-Barre office! He was recognized with a Young Professionals Award from the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce after being nominated by coworkers, clients and community members through the Times Leader publication.
Chamber COO Lindsay Griffin said the Young Professionals were made to help enhance and grow the city while cementing a strong foundation for its future.
