We want you to know how thankful we are for you and so many others who support the work of Jewels Academy. We also wanted to give you a quick snapshot of our progress in 2017 and ask you to consider financially partnering with us through a generous year-end gift.
Would you consider giving a year-end gift?
This year, Jewels Academy served 98 registrants and participated in 3 community outreach events that touched well over 1,000 students! Here are a few highlights:
Registrants for the 2017 Math Camp program tripled.
We had 50% of participants from ethnicity groups underrepresented in STEM.
We now have 8 high school graduates and all are pursuing a STEM degree.
We have our first college graduate and who is a mechanical engineer.
We partnered for STEM programming with Drake University, Iowa State University, and the Governor’s Iowa STEM council.
As we reflect on all Jewels Academy has accomplished this year, we eagerly anticipate more opportunities ahead of us.
Can we count on your financial partnership to help us continue this vibrant educational outreach?
