Middle school students from the Menomonie’s Boys & Girls Club will learn about technology and healthy eating thanks to a new collaborative grant with UW-Stout, the university announced on Tuesday.
To help engage children in Menomonie, the university stated, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Greater Chippewa Valley recently received a 21st Century Community Learning Centers award of nearly $57,000, part of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act through the state Department of Public Instruction.
“This funding truly gives Menomonie Middle School students exciting opportunities,” stated CEO Ann Kaiser in a news release. “We will be able to provide unique experiences only available to club kids, thanks in large part to the partnership and generous outreach of UW-Stout. This grant is a testimony to the power of collaboration.”
