Chapters Education Foundation Supports High School Robotics Program

In October, the chapter's Education Foundation awarded a robotics donation of $5,000 to the Wetumpka High School Robotics Team. The team accepted the donation presented by Charisse Stokes, director, Education Foundation. Led by Dr. Virginia Vilardi, the team is a diverse group of more than 50 high school students ranging from freshmen to seniors. Most recently, the team participated in the War Eagle BEST robotics competition, placing first in the overall competition and taking home eight more awards. The team is now preparing for the second round of BEST competition, South's BEST, at Auburn University at Montgomery. The chapter's Education Foundation is proud to support this hard-working group of students and looks forward to watching the team build on its already-impressive STEM-driven skill sets.
