Fluor Foundation supports math and science innovation in LCISD

L.E.A.F. Executive Director Janice Knight (center) accepts a donation from Fluor’s Richard Meserole and Barbara Jones to underwrite math and science programs in Lamar CISD.

The Fluor Foundation has donated $15,000 to the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation to underwrite innovative math and science grants.

“We are always looking for talented engineers,” said Richard Meserole, General Manager of the Houston office. “If we can help students with science and math during their elementary and secondary years, then hopefully we will see more students enrolling in college engineering programs.”

Fluor Corporation is one of the largest publicly-owned engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance services companies in the world.

L.E.A.F. supports creative ideas and classroom projects of Lamar CISD teachers that would otherwise go unfunded. L.E.A.F. also offers scholarships to graduating Lamar CISD seniors and to paraprofessionals who are working on their teaching certificate. In eleven years of existence, L.E.A.F. has invested over one million dollars into LCISD schools.
