Success students and staff gather to mark the receipt of funds to allow STEM education in the district.

The Success School District recently received funding to implement science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM). 

David Hosick, senior program director at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, and Wendell Bailey of Willow Springs, part of regional group working to improve south-central Missouri, were on hand to present a $10,000 K-12 STEM funding grant to the school district as part of the 10-county SOAR region initiative designed to help students understand that STEM education is relevant in their lives and creates potential for future careers. 

The overarching goal of this effort is to increase the ability of the region to attract new jobs and new investment by improving the educational aptitude and achievement of students, and the competitive position of the school district.
