Rep. Fishbein and Fellow Lawmakers Applaud Wallingford's Efforts To Promote STEM Careers
State lawmakers recognized the Town of Wallingford and the Wallingford Public School District for launching a new campaign to boost interest in fields related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) at Wallingford's "STEM Town" campaign kickoff at Wallingford HUBCAP on Thursday, May 31. State Senator Len Fasano and State Representative Craig Fishbein presented a citation on behalf of the entire Wallingford delegation to the town and school district.
"Supporting our students with smart investments in the STEM fields will prepare them for the future and make both Wallingford and Connecticut stronger,"Rep. Fishbein said. "I'm pleased Superintendent Menzo and the Wallingford School District are providing these opportunities and I'm confident our youth will excel in these in-demand fields. Manufacturers across the state have said they are struggling to find qualified employees because many applicants lack the specific skills taught in these very programs. By putting the focus on STEM education, our schools are saving the essence of manufacturing."
