CI President & CEO Carey Chen, along with several engineers and staff representatives, toured the two schools and learned of the district's plans to expand STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) offerings throughout the district.
The conversation follows a recent financial donation by CI to support SLSD's STEAM programs. The donation will supplement the curriculum and activities offered in both the junior high and high schools.
"We're grateful for the financial support and are excited that CI is considering how to work with our schools to grow these collaborations, which will benefit both our students and this community," states Superintendent John C. Hamstra. "They are truly stepping up and supporting our students and schools and we look forward to an ongoing partnership."
“On behalf of the employees of CI and our related non-profit organization, Cincinnati Incorporated Charitable Foundation (“CICF”), we are pleased to support this local STEAM initiative,” commented Carey Chen. “We are optimistic that some of the students that will benefit from this targeted educational offering will eventually join CI as employees.”
