For the second consecutive year, Novelis, the leading producer of flat-rolled aluminum products and the world’s largest recycler of aluminum, has made a $7,000 gift in support of the Science and Mathematics Summer Camp program in the College of Science at Eastern Kentucky University.
The check presentation ceremony was held in the Science Building on EKU’s campus on Sept. 14. Representing Novelis were Tammy Peyton, environmental health and safety assistant, and Christine Morgan, human resources coordinator.
“As part of our commitment to community outreach and STEM education, we are pleased for the second year to support EKU with an investment geared towards offering STEM opportunities for students,” said Peyton. “The College of Science ran a successful STEM camp last summer and also demonstrated a commitment to recruiting underrepresented populations for the camp.”
Peyton expressed optimism that the success of this gift will strengthen the partnership between the University and Novelis.
“We are very grateful for Novelis’ support,” said Dr. Tom Otieno, dean of the College of Science, who received the check on behalf of Eastern. “We are looking forward to providing another group of young men and women of diverse backgrounds the opportunity to experience the fascinating world of science and mathematics.
