As part of its ongoing support for STEM education, AT&T recently made a $5,000 donation to ATEC for its Project Lead The Way program. ATEC will use this money for supplies and consumables for its Biomedical program that serves students from across Kershaw County.
The donation is an example of the collaborative partnerships that businesses are making to support Kershaw County School District schools and students. Helping to support those partnerships is the Kershaw County legislative delegation that promotes a business-friendly environment. As such, Rep. Laurie Funderburk and Sen. Thomas McElveen were present at Tuesday’s school board meeting to receive proclamations naming the delegation as Distinguished Advocates for Education. Other members of the Kershaw County delegation include Sen. Vincent Sheheen, Sen. Joel Lourie, Rep. Jimmy Bailes, Rep. Grady Brown and Rep. Jay Lucas.
