For Peabody students, it pays to get the grades.
Thanks to a donation from Keith B. Key, a successful Peabody alumnus, the Challenge Program will award monetary incentive to the sophomores through seniors with the best grades, attendance and community service records.

Key, founder of KBK Enterprises, a development company based in Columbus, Ohio, attributes his success to hard work, ambition and leadership experience as the captain of Peabody’s football, track and basketball teams.

Also this week, on Thursday, October 18 from 3 to 5:30 pm, Peabody High School will house the Lights On Afterschool Pittsburgh celebration. Hosted by State Representative Jake Wheatley and Wireless Neighborhoods, over 500 Kindergarten through 5th graders from area elementary schools, their teachers and parents will participate in performances and activities to highlight their after-school programming.
