PPG Donates $8K To After-School Program

Monday, December 28, 2009

Comment | More

The PPG Industries Foundation, headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, has donated $8,000 to the Teays Valley Local School District (Circleville, OH) to support a new science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) after-school and summer program for the Teays Valley West Middle School students.

Schools and other organizations nationwide are being encouraged to spend money, time, and volunteer effort on STEM education through President Obama’s recently-introduced Educate to Innovate campaign. Teays Valley is one of seven school districts in central Ohio selected to begin STEM programs in the 2009-2010 school year.

Jeff Sheets, superintendent of Teays Valley Local School District, stated, “We are very pleased to receive support from PPG for this program. The students’ success in learning the standards depends on teaching and learning as an active inquiry process.”

Dave Moss, plant manager for PPG’s coatings manufacturing facility in Circleville said, “PPG is strongly committed to supporting the communities where its employees work and live. We are proud to support the Teays Valley Local School District in its efforts to promote STEM education for middle school students.”

The PPG Industries Foundation has been providing grants, outreach programs, relief funds, charitable efforts, educational programs, and volunteers for 60 years.
