Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) and parent company Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) announced a donation of $100,000 to support Cherokee County School District as part of the DaimlerCares Program. The donation will support the school district’s Project Lead the Way program, which prepares dozens of district high school students for careers and/or secondary education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs.
“Project Lead the Way is an important and exciting initiative aimed at developing the next generation of STEM leaders for our county, our state and our country,” explained David Carson, president of FCCC. “We are excited to support the program, the district and its students.”
CCSD will use the donation to purchase computers, software and other key resources as Project Lead the Way plans to relocate to the district’s new career center when it opens for the 2018-19 school year.
“We are incredibly grateful to FCCC and DTNA for the continued support of Project Lead the Way and all of our STEM efforts,” said Quincie L. Moore, superintendent of Cherokee County School District. “This donation will play a pivotal role in equipping our program with the supplies and resources needed to help us provide a world-class STEM education to our students.”
