20 May 2016

Amaray has volunteered to sponsor East Hardin Middle School (Elizabethtown, KY), as part of an Atlas Foundation partnership with Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a non-profit organization that provides transformative learning to enhance the education of students while strengthening the connection between associates and the community.  

With a 17% growth anticipated in US manufacturing and 1.2 million unfilled Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) jobs projected by 2018, PLTW is specifically focused on rejuvenating interest in this sector and its growing need for technically proficient graduates. 

The program that Amaray will support is called “Project Gateway” and it is designed to inspire creativity and develop self-confidence in young students (grades 5-8) who enjoy learning how things work, exploring new ideas and concepts, and collaborating with others on design activities.

“Amaray is excited to contribute within one of the primary communities in which we operate.  We believe that helping to inspire America’s youth around STEM disciplines is an important responsibility for our organization, the plastic manufacturing industry and our country in general” stated Jim Sykes – Amaray President & CEO.
