U.S. Department of Defense awards grant to El Dorado for STEM advancement

El Dorado High School received a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to launch a National Math and Science Initiative college readiness program to provide more STEM opportunities with training and resources for students, faculty and staff.

Representatives from Fort Bliss and NMSI presented the $274,319 check at a special ceremony Nov. 16 in the theater at El Dorado. The grant will help advance STEM education at the school so all students can reach their highest potential.

“This is just another opportunity to provide a pathway of success for our scholars, which is truly aligning with Socorro ISD’s mission of college and career readiness,” said Janet Carrillo, assistant principal at El Dorado High School. “It’s another way that we can champion our scholars to show them that people, besides ourselves, see potential in them and are wanting to help them achieve and be successful in the future.”
