SCHOOL SUPPORT

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — "STEM education is so critically important because it will prepare today's students for the opportunities of tomorrow," he said. "At DuPont, we are a science company. We are engaged in innovation through science. The students of today that will become the employees of tomorrow will find science, technology, engineering and mathematics avenues in the 21st Century workplace. We believe the opportunities in STEM are going to continue to grow exponentially in the future. When you talk educating our children, it's about giving them every tool possible to avail themselves of these opportunities."

The partnership between DuPont and the city school district isn't a new one. There's been plenty of support both ways, this just being the latest example.

But Hyde Park Elemtary, in particular, grabbed the attention of the decision makers at DuPont's corporate offices concerning the grant money, which Ciotta said further strengthens the bonds of the partnership developed over years.

"Hyde Park Elementary is doing a tremendous job on putting a focus on STEM education and on exposing children at an early age to the unlimited pathways to study and, ultimately, careers," Ciotta said. "This opportunity to show our support to not only a neighbor, but a school focused in that area, is very exciting to us."

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
