Charles City STEM Program Receives Grant

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.

He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them.
