Michelin commits $30,000 for robotics education in Lexington District One

September 25, 2018

Lexington, SC - At the Lexington School District One Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, Michelin announced a $30,000 commitment to the Lexington One Educational Foundation to support robotics education in the district. Personnel Manager Mike Williams made the announcement and emphasized the company’s commitment to educating students about emerging technologies and career opportunities in their industry.


The Michelin donation will be a three-year investment to support Lexington District One robotics teams through select team sponsorship. In addition to a financial investment, Michelin will also provide professional mentors for five teams. Mentorship opportunities will allow Michelin leaders to help develop and sharpen technological, mechanical, communication and leadership skills in Lexington One students.


Simeon Bryant, chair of the Lexington One Educational Foundation, praised Michelin for its donation. “The Foundation leaders are extremely thankful for corporate partners such as Michelin that continue to invest in our students and their educational pursuits,” he said. “STEM areas of study and hands-on experiences are important components of a student’s education in the 21st century.”


“We are so fortunate and appreciative of Michelin’s continued generosity in supporting Lexington School District One in so many ways,” agreed Julie Anderson Washburn, executive director of the Lexington One Educational Foundation. “This partnership is a terrific example of a local company having a positive impact on our students through its financial investment and mentorship.”
