Stafford businesses make a difference in students lives

By Karen Daniels 

For the past 14 years, Carin Williamson, a teacher at SMSD has chaperoned 8th grade students that meet the grade and conduct criteria to Washington D.C. and New York City to learn about history and government. In a district where more than 65% students are economically challenged, this is not an easy undertaking for many families. Last year, due to the generosity of several Stafford businesses, Rockford Management (The Resort Townhomes and Windfield Townhomes) and Industrial Ventilation Systems, enough money was donated so that two scholarships were available. This year, SMSD is asking once again for community businesses to lend a helping hand.

Arthur and Margie Kohn and Christian and Janet Strickland, on behalf of Industrial Ventilation Systems, had this to say about giving. “What interested us was that the donation made an instant impact on the student’s lives. With many charitable donations it’s not always clear how your money has made a difference in someone’s life. But with this it was very clear.” In order to apply for the scholarships, students must write an essay. Margie Kohn had the opportunity to read these papers. “The writing brought me to tears a few times because these students were dealing with so much in their lives, but yet still had a goal and ambition to see more and do more for themselves and others. These student’s are our future and the businesses of Stafford have the means to help the students’ reach their goals.”

SMSD Board of Trustees President, Ed Castillo said, “Business support of student programs, such as providing scholarships for 8thgraders to travel to Washington D.C., is a foundation of SMSD providing high-quality education. SMSD is appreciative of businesses that have supported our programs in the past and eager to continue those relationships. We encourage all Stafford and Fort Bend County businesses and organizations to become involved with our students and schools. Contributing scholarships sends a powerful message to our students that they are important and their community cares. Involvement in our student programs and schools through scholarships, teacher grants, and providing volunteers ensures our business community has voice in the education of their future workforce. Great schools do not happen without the involvement of all stakeholders – students, parents, educators and community. SMSD is eager to engage additional business support to benefit programs that prepare our students for college and careers.”
