Grow Our Own

We believe that diversity of thought and background contributes to our success as a company. As part of the Grow Our Own program, we partner with the city of Springfield and Sangamon County to educate and ultimately employ minority youth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. Participants in this program range from middle-school students to college scholars and are recruited through area schools, minority-based organizations and individual referrals. Participants are invited to special company events, engineering camps and internships offered by a range of community partners.
