Lane Education Foundation Receives OCF Award to Support Tech Education in Lane County - 06/09/17

The Lane Education Foundation received a $20,000 grant from the The Oregon Community Foundation to help support the growth of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education in Lane County. Ashley Espinoza, a volunteer member of The OCF's Southern Willamette Valley Leadership Council, presented the community grant award to Carol Dennis, Chair of the Lane Education Foundation Board, and with Heidi Larwick, Director of Connected Lane County and Lane STEM. The award was presented on June 8 at the Student Internship Completion Dinner, which celebrated the first cohort of high school student interns, along with their families and industry supervisors.

Connected Lane County has partnered with Lane STEM, Technology Association of Oregon, LCC, UO, and K-12 schools in Lane County to build high school educator capacity, create learning opportunities for students, and improve equitable access to computer science for all Lane County students. "In addition to creating these wonderful opportunities for students and teachers, this project is helping build a pipeline of skilled workers to Lane County's burgeoning tech industries," say Carol Dennis.

The Lane Education Foundation's goal is to ensure every child in Lane County has opportunities for intellectual growth and success regardless of need, ability, or location. The mission of The Oregon Community Foundation is to improve lives for all Oregonians through the power of philanthropy. OCF works with individuals, families, businesses and organizations to create charitable funds to support the community causes they care about.
