Columbia County teachers receive grants for STEM programs

Savannah River Remediation recently awarded educational grants to Columbia County elementary school teachers, helping to support Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math curriculum in their classrooms.

Teachers from four Columbia County elementary schools won SRR Students/Teachers Achieving Results grants this year to provide funding for innovative approaches to teaching STEM areas.

The 2020 SRR STAR grant winners in Columbia County were Debbie Rogers of Euchee Creek Elementary, Tarynn Josey of Evans Elementary, Jennifer Douglass and Leslie Dial of Martinez Elementary and Lexi Tanner of South Columbia Elementary.

A team of SRR employees reviewed the grant proposals submitted this year and selected the entries to receive the grants based upon excellence in teaching to enhance elementary school science and mathematics programs. This year’s grants totaled more than $14,000. SRR has provided more than $90,000 in grants since the Company began awarding grants in 2009.

“We enjoy partnering with teachers who are so instrumental in molding and developing innovative minds that will be the future of our workforce and communities,” Phil Breidenbach, SRR President and Project Manager, said. “These teachers frequently give extra time and spend their own money to provide their students with opportunities that go above the standard curriculum. These grants help teachers make STEM-related concepts more hands-on and effective in the classroom.”
