Micron Donation Supports Technology Ed at MPCS
Micron awarded $8,000 to BELL - the Education Foundation of Manassas Park - in support of technology education and scholarships for students.
BELL Executive Director Kristen Marbury said the grant will directly impact the opportunities afforded to the students of Manassas Park City Schools.
“With business partners like Micron, BELL is able to support robotics education at MPCS as well as provide scholarships to graduating seniors entering technology and engineering fields,” Marbury said. “Micron’s generous donation will continue to provide resources for our kids in rapidly growing fields.”
Micron’s award also will support classroom grants for teachers. As part of BELL’s Innovative Classroom Grant process, MPCS teachers can receive grants to support innovative ideas that support classroom learning. Each year, more than $10,000 is put directly in the hands of classroom teachers.
“Micron’s investment in our youth is evident,” added Marbury. “We are incredibly grateful for their strong support of our education community.”
Micron is an industry leader in innovative memory and storage solutions. In 2018, the company announced a $3 billion investment in its Manassas, VA, memory chip production plant. As part of its expansion in Virginia, the Micron Foundation committed funds to support STEM education in the Commonwealth.
BELL – the Education Foundation of Manassas Park – provides support and resources to the students and staff of Manassas Park City Schools. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization, all donations to BELL directly support Manassas Park City Schools.
