Edgewood Elementary School students in Mrs. Marie Ander’s fifth grade class are off to a “WINning” start this year thanks to a donation of a year’s supply of bookbags and school supplies from the employees of the Limerick Generating Station. Mrs. Tumeka Flanigan, Head of Women In Nuclear (WIN), presented each student with a bookbag filled with school supplies including pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, binders, and crayons to last the school year. Speaking to the class, Flanigan said, “Getting a good education is the key to your success in the future. Set your goals high and never give up.” She emphasized the importance of a well-rounded education that includes the arts, the sciences, social studies, and language.
The Limerick Chapter of Women In Nuclear supports a network throughout which professional and personal development is promoted. The organization is open to all women within the Exelon community who desire to develop themselves professionally and personally.
Mrs. Anders expressed gratitude on behalf of the students for the donation of school supplies and noted, “Having the necessary tools to do homework assignments and prepare for classroom academic lessons is essential to our students’ success. We appreciate the partnership that we have established with WIN and the Limerick Generating Station.
Principal Calista Boyer noted, “This is another excellent example of our school district developing partnerships within the private sector that result in enriched learning experiences for our students.”
