September 13 – A grant of $4,800 from Ameren Illinois will fund a new mobile Chromebook lab at Warrensburg-Latham Elementary School.
The lab will allow each grade level to have access to the technology for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math projects.
“We are extremely grateful for Ameren’s commitment to supporting their local community,” said Principal Laura Anderson. “Ameren’s donation will provide additional resources to our students and teachers so that we can enhance student learning.”
The grant funds were made available through the Ameren Carers program, which focuses on partnering with non-profit organizations to improve the quality of life in the company’s service territory.
“We want to give young people in our communities every chance for success. That’s why we are proud to support the efforts of Warrensburg-Latham Elementary School,” said Gussie Reed, Division Director at Ameren Illinois. “Nothing empowers like education, and incorporating STEM projects into the classrooms at a young age gives these students the opportunity to grow a love for and potentially a career in STEM.”
