Thirteen Westinghouse High School students who  are halfway through their first University of Pittsburgh course were recently celebrated at a special College Night at the WARM Center, in Homewood.
The students are taking Intro to Social Work through Pitt’s College in High School Program, which is being offered for the first time to students at Pittsburgh Westinghouse. In April, the teens will receive college credit for successfully completing the course.
