Local School Receives Grant

The chapter's Education Foundation recently awarded a Science Teaching Tools Grant supporting the IT Academy program at local Robert E. Lee High School. Accepting the grant on behalf of the Information Technology (IT) Academy was Lorenza Pharrams, principal of Lee High School, as well as instructors Alesia Ruffin and Kevon Chesson. Charisse Stokes, director of the Education Foundation, presented the check, valued at $1,000, in October. The IT Academy plans to use the newly acquired funds to provide essential software upgrades to existing classroom equipment. Students' exposure to the new and emerging technology currently utilized by the IT Academy stimulates early interest in an ever-growing and changing industry as well as invaluable experience to give students the upper hand in the competitive information technology industry.
