The Fluor Foundation has donated $20,800 to the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation to underwrite science, technology engineering and math (STEM) programs.
“It’s encouraging to see the results of the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program at Lamar CISD,” said Tim Palmore, Senior Project Manager for Fluor.
“I was invited to meet with the students enrolled in this program at Lamar Consolidated High School and see first-hand how it is preparing these students for college and/or future careers.
The students were truly excited about what they are learning and how it is preparing them for the future.
Fluor is pleased to support L.E.A.F. with this donation to assist with the STEM program.”
“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.
