In July, AT&T joined The Disability Network (TDN) for their 27th annual American’s with Disabilities Act celebration. AT&T’s contribution of $10,000 sponsors the day’s event, which also served as a goodbye for TDN founder and longtime president, Mike Zelley, who announced his retirement earlier this year.
The Disability Network is an organization we are immensely proud to support, and we were happy we could participate in saying goodbye and thank you to Mike for all the amazing work he has done over the years.
Later in the summer, AT&T presented $15,000 to the Inland Seas Education Association in support of the organization’s Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs) program. The organization provides students the unique opportunity to conduct scientific research and experiments using state-art-equipment aboard a sailing vessel on Lake Michigan.
“AT&T’s generous contribution to our ROV program will go a long way in helping us advance our mission to protect the Great Lakes through education,” said Fred Sitkins, executive director of ISEA. “Our hope is that exposing these young students to this kind of exciting, hands-on application of research and STEM education will inspire these young adults to step forward as the next generation committed to the active stewardship of our Great Lakes.”
