Partnerships Support Local Schools

It is not easy running a school.  Managing the logistics of a medium-sized business, the politics of a small town and a budget under stress challenges all principals. Principals need perseverance and confidence to tackle the opportunities that each day brings, but they balance it with hugs, hall art, smiles and the desire to succeed. And in each classroom, teachers are the glue providing instruction, guidance and inspiration. A school is an energetic place.  In business, we expend great deal of thought, energy and resource to make our employees enthusiastic.  For the young, enthusiasm is natural.  Just imagine if we could capture that energy and make that enthusiasm last into adulthood, the world would be a lovelier place. Undoubtedly, children are the future or more accurately – the hope of the future.  They need every advantage we can off to make them competitive, informed and … [Read more...]

Girl Scout Engineers!

LAN Systems helped sponsor a Girl Scout event yesterday at Southern Polytechnic State University introducing the girls to engineering as a career. Although the number of women in engineering is growing, the growth has been modest compared to other careers. That’s because even though girls have the smarts, if they don’t take the required math and science in high school, engineering school is a far reach.  As a group, girls get less math and science training.  That’s where we help. Through programs like Girl Scout Engineers, women engineers show girls that math and science is fun and challenging.  The girls always amaze us with their brilliance and their technical ability.  Studies tell us that unless we reach girls by the 5th or 6th grade, they probably won’t get the courses needed in high school. That’s why the Girl Scout program is so important. The activities included building a … [Read more...]
