Mt. Olive Manufacturing Donates $5,000 to Support Technical Education in Morgan County
December 2014 – Steve and Lisa Langley, owners of Mt. Olive Manufacturing, announced a new financial commitment of $5,000 to Northwood Elementary School’s technical and mechanical education programs through the establishment of a new fund at the Community Foundation of Morgan County (CFMC) entitled, “Project Lead the Way.” Northwood Elementary is part of the Mooresville Consolidated School Corporation. The Langley’s believe that experience-based education at an early age creates the necessary contact children need with technology and mechanics. This familiarity fosters skill development and a greater interest in continued education in secondary and post-secondary work-force education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
This project is the nation’s premier STEM program, and is currently being utilized at Mooresville High School and Paul Hadley Middle School. Northwood is the first local elementary school to begin PLTW programming. Elementary PLTW programs focus on different concepts for each grade level and include topics such as robotics, space, building concepts, and matter.
“Steve and Lisa have a clear record of inspirational and financial support for increased educational experiences in technological and mechanical learning,” commented Larry Bryan, CFMC Director of Development. “The Langley’s are making a conscious decision to introduce basic technological and mechanical skills into a young person’s education before high school, which we hope will lead to a great interest later in life.”
