Goldsboro Elementary Magnet School Named Recipient of $45,000 Donation to Expand School Space Center

Sanford, FL: WOW! Internet, Cable & Phone (NYSE: WOW), a leading broadband services provider, today announced the company has made a $45,000 donation to the Goldsboro Elementary Magnet School Kids Space Center in Sanford, Florida to update the technology and simulation software for the students. The donation is one of the many ways that WOW! intends to invest in the community leading up to its official launch of its services to residents and businesses in Seminole County before the end of the year. 

WOW! awarded the donation to Goldsboro Elementary’s Principal, Dr. Chris Mulholland during a news conference held today at the school’s Space Center. In addition to students and faculty, attendees at the event included the Superintendent of Seminole County Public Schools as well as ACA Connects President and CEO Grant Spellmeyer. The Space Center provides STEM education opportunities for students to explore space through a variety of simulations and experiments. The money will be used to update its mission control center, experiment bays and lunar landing testing technology as well as its simulation software.  

“As a school that embraces a rich educational experience, it's imperative that we have the necessary resources to deliver upon this mission,” said Mulholland. “We are grateful to WOW! for their generous donation to help us update our Space Center and continue to inspire the next generation of astronauts.”

WOW! announced Seminole County and Orange County as its first Greenfield market expansions earlier this year, highlighting both area’s potential for growth and how customers will benefit from WOW!'s innovative technology and product suite that provides the best in choice, reliability, speed and value. Part of these announcements included WOW!’s commitment to investing in Seminole and Orange County’s people and communities, prompting the company to partner with the Seminole County School District as a first step. 

“We are pleased to make this donation to Goldsboro Elementary to help expand the reach of STEM education for these students,” said Teresa Elder, CEO of WOW!. “Technology can be instrumental in building community. We will continue offering resources and opportunities not only for students in the area but to residents and businesses alike. We can’t wait for the residents of Seminole County and Orange County to see what else WOW! has to offer in the coming months.”

In addition to the donation, a representative from WOW! will also be joining the Crooms Academy Business Advisory Council to help students achieve their futures and prepare students for the workplace environment.
