Garver engineer supports school through the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge

By distributing 100 STEM kits and donations to schools across the country, Garver is celebrating its centennial by supporting the creative and critical thinking that can cultivate the next generation of engineers. And by allowing employees to nominate the participating schools, Garver is concentrating its support on the schools and communities that mean the most to its employees.

Transportation Project Engineer Lacee Stanley nominated Keystone Elementary School in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, and in doing so was able to give back to the teacher and school that first sparked her interest in STEM subjects. 

Stanley, based in Garver’s Tulsa office, credited the school’s small classrooms and close attention from Carie Howard, her fifth-grade teacher, for introducing her to subjects relating to science, technology, engineering, and math.

“I’m just really happy that I got the opportunity to help out Keystone,” Stanley said. “I know every little bit helps, especially these days with how education funding is. And I’m really thankful that my company gave us this opportunity to let us come out here and interact with the kids. We all just had a great time.”
