Adams lights vets’ graves

FromĀ The Chieftain:

Adams Electric wwas recognized for donating a new solar-powered and vandal-proof lighting system to Roselawn Cemetery.

Cemetery officials said they have had a chronic problem with vandals damaging the lighting system that illuminates the American flag in a section of the cemetery sponsored by the Retired Enlisted Association.

Roselawn officials were going to hire Adams Electric to repair and replace the lighting system but the company ultimately donated its work and equipment to honor the veterans buried there.

“We were moved and thrilled by what Adams Electric was willing to do to show their support for veterans,” said Lucille Corsentino, president of the Roselawn Foundation.

Big shout-out to our member Adams Electric for stepping in to help their community in any way they can!

Xcel grant to help PCC’s STEM programs

Pueblo Community College’s science technology, engineering and mathematics program has received a boost from Xcel Energy that will help bring in speakers and provide more career exploration opportunities for students.

On behalf of PCC, the Pueblo Community College Foundation is the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Xcel Energy Foundation.

The award, which will benefit the PCC STEM Center, was made possible through an Xcel Energy Foundation Economic Sustainability grant application submitted by the PCC Foundation. The funds will be used to enhance PCC’s Stars of STEM speaker series.

“We are really excited to receive this grant from Xcel,” said Joey Mathews, PCC’s director of STEM Career and Technical Education. “It will allow us to collaborate with larger industries and engage STEM students in a more unique approach.”

The PCC STEM Center opened in 2015. It engages students of all ages and backgrounds. In addition to the Stars of STEM series, Mathews created Tech Tuesdays and Science Thursdays to showcase professionals and topics in those disciplines.
