PotashCorp donates $35,000 to HamCo schools

Money to be used for STEM education

Jasper — The Hamilton County School District received a generous donation from PotashCorp White Springs during their Nov. 20 meeting; money that is designated for use in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program within the Hamilton County school district.

PotashCorp Public Relations Manager Mike Williams said, “I come bringing good news.”

On behalf of PotashCorp General Manager Terry Baker, Williams then presented the $35,000 check to the school board. The STEM program, he said, is near and dear to the heart of PotashCorp.

New Supt. of Schools Thomas Moffses said, “I can’t thank you enough. That is a wonderful contribution to education in Hamilton County.”

PotashCorp, Moffses said, has been a tremendous partner with the school district through the years, as well as to the entire county.

“I personally thank you for the contribution and we’ll make sure the kids are very aware of where that came from and make sure that it is distributed for STEM education as requested,” said Moffses. “On behalf of the board, I thank you, and please share with Terry and the rest of the team out there how much we appreciate their continued support of Hamilton County education.”
