Leviton has announced its support of the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics’ (NCSSM) expansion to a second campus in western North Carolina with a donation of $250,000. In honor of the substantial gift, NCSSM will recognize Leviton with the naming of the Leviton Engineering Lab on the new campus.
“North Carolina has been an important region for Leviton’s business for over five decades, and we are proud to support The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics’ historic expansion to a second campus into Western North Carolina,” says Donald J. Hendler, Leviton’s chief executive officer. “The education that the NCSSM provides is critical to the development and future of the region.”
NCSSM is the nation’s first public residential high school specializing in science, technology, engineering and math, and with Leviton’s support, its expansion to a second location in Morganton, NC, will make it the first program of its kind with two physical locations.
NCSSM-Morganton will feature an innovative curriculum centered around data science designed to educate and inspire the next generation of problem solvers. The Leviton Engineering Lab will enable that cutting-edge learning experience by emphasizing creativity, problem solving, and the practical applications of innovative technologies. Students will explore engineering and data science as they design thoughtful solutions to real-world issues.
Leviton’s donation will specifically be used to support the construction of the NCSSM-Morganton campus student wellness center and provide for student services.
In addition to the naming of the Leviton Engineering Lab, Leviton will also be acknowledged on the NCSSM-Morganton donor recognition wall at the historic cattle barn on the campus.
The NCSSM-Morganton campus will open in 2021.
