McKinstry is Awarded “Distinguished Education Partner of the Year” by the Washington Alliance for Better Schools

SEATTLE, WA — McKinstry has been awarded “Distinguished Education Partner of the Year” by the Washington Alliance for Better Schools, a collaborative of school districts and industry leaders that leverages resources, talent and intellectual capital to help students graduate career and college ready. Through a generous gift from the McKinstry Charitable Foundation, McKinstry joined forces with WABS to support their Family STEM Night initiative, an endeavor aimed at improving equity and access to career-connected STEM learning opportunities for BIPOC, refugee and immigrant students as well as their families.

The Family STEM nights occurred at 24 schools across the Seattle region this semester and allowed students and families to connect with McKinstry professionals and have fun creating a STEM project together. Over the duration of the program, 44 McKinstry volunteers attended Family STEM Nights and engaged with 175 families and 650+ students! This partnership not only creates an opportunity for McKinstry employees to make a positive difference in their communities, but it sparks innovation for students and helps them build pathways toward potential STEM careers. Overall, Family STEM Nights provide an interactive way for students and their families to learn alongside industry professionals.
