Logix Federal Credit Union donated $1,000 to Sequoia School’s biomedical curriculum, part of the cutting-edge course work from Project Lead the Way. The credit union’s contribution was about 30 percent of the cost of the program. It requires unique supplies, instruments and tools, which is one of the reasons for the expense.

The SCV Education Foundation’s Principal for a Day helped connect Principal Brandi Davis to Branch Sales Manager Jason Lee from Logix, and that’s where the relationship began.

“A couple years ago, I was fortunate to meet Brandi (Davis) at Principal for a Day,” Branch Sales Manager Jason Lee said. “We kept in touch. And, when the chance to help Sequoia School came up, Logix was glad to partner. The school has only 55 students; it’s tough to fundraise with that number of students. They deserve what the other schools have. Science and math are valuable subjects, and they’ll learn a lot from the content and the teacher; they’re very passionate about the program.”

Principal Davis and her staff are grateful for the support. The parents have helped support this program by bringing in $600. The extra assistance has gone a long way.

“At Sequoia, we are committed to providing our students with as many positive learning experiences and opportunities for growth as possible,” Principal Davis said. “The gift from Logix will enrich our students’ high school experience. We strive to give our students the education they deserve; they want to work hard and we want to support their efforts. Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital gave us 10 lab coats, too. It’s a true community partnership to help make the program possible.”

One of the goals of Principal for a Day is unifying businesses and schools. Each of the organizations can accomplish extraordinary tasks by working together.

“When the business community connects with our principals and our schools, it demonstrates the commitment our community has to our students and their abilities,” said Jackie Hartmann, Executive Director for the SCV Education Foundation. “Jason (Lee) and Brandi (Davis) talk about how they have learned from each other. This relationship is what we’re hoping the other principals and businesses experience. It takes a small collaboration to create big opportunities; they’ve shown that.”

Teachers are also excited about the participation from Logix.

“The generosity that has been shown by Logix will be put to use to meet district standards of differentiation through technology. We’ll be getting 10 megapixel microscopes that we project onto a big-screen TV to do hair analysis. We’re going to be doing gel electrophoreses … This is absolutely an amazing gesture and we couldn’t be more gratified,” Special Education Teacher Mike Koegle said.
