L&N STEM Academy in Knoxville has received $1,000 through U.S. Cellular’s “Community Connections” program. L&N STEM Academy signed up to receive sponsorship dollars from U.S. Cellular at www.pearup.com/uscellular and then rallied their neighbors, friends and family to earn points that were converted into money from U.S. Cellular.
“Organizations like the L&N STEM Academy are at the heart of our communities’ future. By ensuring they have the necessary tools and resources to provide meaningful opportunities for our youth, we are investing in our future,” said Traci Cash, local marketing and brand activation manager for U.S. Cellular in Tennessee.
“Community Connections” is in its second consecutive year, and is an exclusive collaboration between U.S. Cellular and Pear, an online platform that connects local brands with local community needs. Last year, U.S. Cellular provided $295,000 in sponsorships to more than 700 local school groups and youth sports teams through this program.
As a wireless company with national coverage, U.S. Cellular is committed to building better communities by championing K-12 science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) educational programs. The programming, which is a focus at L&N STEM Academy, helps develop the company’s future associate base.
