State Rep. Margo Davidson


Davidson worked behind scenes to help save Bonner-Prendie


UPPER DARBY, Feb. 24 State Rep. Margo Davidson, D-Delaware, welcomed today's announcement by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia that Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast High School will stay open.


After the announcement, Bonner-Prendie's president, the Rev. James Olson, first thanked Davidson for her work behind the scenes to keep the schools open and her continued support of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program. EITC provides state tax credits to businesses that donate to nonprofit scholarship organizations, which distribute the scholarship funds to eligible students.


Davidson said, "Bonner-Prendie is a very important part of this community and the thought of it closing tore at the hearts of many parents, children and teachers in the Upper Darby-Lansdowne area. I'm very happy we were able to save it and hope to save it forevermore."


Davidson represents the 164th Legislative District, which includes most of Upper Darby and all of East Lansdowne and Millbourne.
