For the fifth year in a row, Flat Rock Elementary and the Michelin's Starr plant is ranked #1 in Michelin's Challenge Education program for North America. The partnership between Flat Rock and Michelin focuses on helping students improve their academic achievement, especially in reading. Partnership activities include mentoring, tutoring, reading buddies, STEM volunteers, Angel Tree fund, and the outdoor classroom and gardens.
"This year, Michelin North America celebrates 10 years since the launch of its signature education program, Michelin Challenge Education. Michelin Challenge Education provides support to public Title 1 elementary schools in the forms of tutors, mentors, lunch buddies and financial contributions.
The goal of the program is to provide much-needed human capital that will positively impact the lives of disadvantaged children. Since its launch in 2009, the program is part of 23 schools in North America where more than 500 employee volunteers visit weekly. Further, Michelin has donated more than 150,000 books to local elementary schools over the past ten years."
Thank you, Michelin, for your continued partnership with Flat Rock, and Anderson 3!
