P.I.T.’s mission, as described by our Founder Walter Garrison, is “Student Success” and we hope that our students are able to share the knowledge they learned to other students. That is exactly what Angeline Mulbah, one of our Allied Health students, has been able to do and we are very proud of her. Angeline opted to take her classes online during this term so that she could travel to Liberia and tutor children in art, music, healthcare, and additional topics that she has been studying at P.I.T.
