DALLAS – NEC Corporation of America President and CEO Shin Takahashi accompanied DISD Superintendent Michael Hinojosa and Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins during a tour of several S.T.E.M. programs at middle and high school campuses on Wednesday, February 24 2016. The tour provided an opportunity to see students in action and learn the positive impact S.T.E.M. education has on student achievement.
The NEC Foundation of America is investing $250,000 in the S.T.E.M. program of the Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School and will be recruiting two interns from the senior class. S.T.E.M. education is one of the main focus areas of the Foundation’s mission to contribute to the creation of social value and advance society through innovative giving programs. District leaders say they are working to expand S.T.E.M. initiatives in more middle schools over the next three years.
