LANSING PROMISE RECIEVES SECOND $25,000 DONATION FROM LANSING COMPANY
Lansing based global specialty biopharmaceutical company Emergent BioSolutions completed its second $25,000 donation this year to the Lansing Promise through the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, eGiVE. The initial $25,000 donation was granted earlier this year, at the Lansing Promise Dinner in April.
The Lansing Promise Scholarship is an award offered to graduates of public and private schools within the Lansing School District boundaries. It provides the financial assistance necessary to obtain a two-year college degree or its equivalent at an eligible school.
Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero was on hand for the presentation. “Emergent is a vital part of Lansing’s economy and community,” Bernero said. “We are grateful for their continued commitment and leadership to advance educational opportunities for the youth of our community.”
Also in attendance at the presentation were Lansing Promise students currently attending Lansing Community College, Adam Harvey and Emergent representatives, LCC President Dr. Brent Knight, Lansing School District Deputy Superintendent Mark Coscarella, and Lansing Promise representatives and board members.
“Emergent believes that well-educated children are foundational to ensuring thriving communities,” said Harvey. “Our company is proud to support children in our community who pursue a post-secondary education, positioning themselves for future success and the opportunity to become the next generation of leaders in Lansing.”
Kellie Dean, chairperson of the Lansing Promise calls Emergent “a great corporate partner to the children of Lansing.”
