I-66 Express Mobility Partner, builder and operator of the 66 Express Lanes Outside the Beltway, has made a $25,000 contribution to Educate Fairfax. Of the total, $20,000 will support the Innovators Fund, a program that augments science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, aligning with the workforce needs of the local business community. Funds provide equipment, supplies, STEM programming and innovation labs inside high schools around Fairfax County.
The remaining $5,000 has been earmarked for Educate Fairfax’s Kids in Need Fund, which provides essential supplies to students from low-income households or other special circumstances such as refugee status.
“Supporting education throughout Northern Virginia has always been core to our corporate mission,” said Nancy H. Smith, corporate affairs director for I-66 EMP. “As an engineering company, we’re especially motivated to support STEM education, which is so crucial to our region’s and our nation’s economic future. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Educate Fairfax for many years to come.”
