The Fluor Foundation has donated $30,000 to the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation to underwrite science, technology engineering and math (STEM) programs and to host eight science workshops presented by Houston Museum of Natural Science.

“At Fluor, we believe STEM education is a foundational component of success in the 21st century and creates a pipeline for future innovators that will move our nation forward,” said Dan Spinks, VP and General Manager, Houston office. “That is one of the reasons why STEM education is so important to Fluor, and we are pleased to partner with L.E.A.F. in its efforts to increase STEM initiatives throughout Lamar CISD.”

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

“We are thrilled that Fluor is committed to supporting the students of Lamar CISD,” said Janice Knight, executive director for L.E.A.F.

L.E.A.F. supports creative ideas and classroom projects of Lamar CISD teachers that would otherwise go unfunded.
