MARION COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The Marion County Healthcare Foundation (MCHF) is scheduled to present Creek Bridge High School with a check for $7,800, on December 8, to support the new Lego Robotics program. The check presentation ceremony will take place at Creek Bridge Middle/High School at 2:00 p.m.

SC teacher, Rachel Abram, was soliciting funds on a crowdfunding site for the STEM Lego Robotics class she was teaching at Creek Bridge Middle/High School. SC State economic development representative for the 7th district, Rodney Berry, sent an email to community leaders encouraging the community to come together and support the project which has significant economic implications for Marion County and its youth.

Executive Director of the Marion County Healthcare Foundation, Mary Dunbar, was one of the recipients of the email.

“As I read the email from Rodney, I saw this as a potential funding opportunity for MCHF and was excited to share the idea of offering an unsolicited grant award to support the project with the foundation’s board of directors. MCHF had just undergone strategic planning and identified three areas of funding for the upcoming year:  education, economic development and healthcare. This project addresses two of these three areas of funding that the board plans to fund in 2016, education and economic development.  The board agreed overwhelmingly to provide grant funding in the amount of $7,800, enough to purchase 21 robotics sets for the school,” Dunbar said.
