Partners In Education kicks off new school year
More than 450 individuals joined the Tulsa Metro Chamber last week to begin another successful year of the Partners In Education program, a collaboration of the Chamber and Tulsa Public Schools. The Honorable Dewey Bartlett, Tulsa mayor, and TPS Superintendent Dr. Keith Ballard were on hand to discuss the importance of education to the community and the future of Tulsa. Ballard commended the Chamberís efforts to connect the business community to schools in Tulsa.
Additionally, KIPP Preparatory Schoolís drumline band and the Edison High School varsity pom squad provided entertainment at the breakfast.
More than 1,450 corporations, community organizations and faith-based entities are now making a difference in the lives of children in Tulsa through Partners In Education. Through the program, community organizations are matched with individual schools, multiple schools or the entire district to provide resources through volunteers, cash and in-kind contributions including professional expertise and access to other resources, all of which assist schools in filling gaps not covered by school funding.
The Chamber continues to seek partners for this critical program. To become a partner or to learn more, contact Heather Johnson at email@example.com†or 918.560.0218.
