Ripken Foundation Teams Up with Taylor Bank for New STEM Centers

Apr 17, 2023

The Ripken Foundation will be installing two new state-of-the-art STEM Centers in Nandua Middle School and Arcadia Middle School in Accomack County, thanks to a generous pledge from Taylor Bank. These funds will help the Foundation provide STEM equipment, furniture, coordinator training, Ripken STEM Curriculum guidebooks, and activity kits. These tools will assist teachers and mentors in providing fun and engaging STEM education to youth, preparing them for a workforce growing with STEM opportunities. “At Taylor Bank, we view an investment in STEM as an investment in the future for the students at Nandua Middle School and Arcadia Middle School, as well as for our communities,” said Ray Thompson, Taylor Bank President and CEO. “We are proud to partner with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation to enhance STEM educational opportunities for students.”
