Charles City STEM Program Receives Grant

Charles City Comets

Charles City, Iowa – A few Charles City teachers recently received a grant for their “one of a kind” program.

Diane Sande, Anna Burnham and Ann Prichard are all educators at Lincoln Elementary School and the three women each have a hand in the STEM Program at the school. They have been awarded $2,000 from the 2017 Voya Unsung Heroes Awards Competition.

The STEM program helps get young girls interested in careers in engineering. This program helps them face a variety of challenges, and it is the first program of its kind.

The three ladies receive the grant with only 100 people being awarded out of 1,200 applicants.
