Fairfield County Business Journal;5/2/2005, Vol. 44 Issue 18, p17
The article informs that the Danbury State Scholars Program has received a $15,000 donation--$10,000 from GE Commercial Finance and $5,000 from Boehringer Ingelheim--to create an academic enhancement lab at Danbury High School, Connecticut. The Connecticut State Scholars Program builds on the solid academic foundation that a Danbury public school has established. As part of the program, business leaders visit classrooms and encourage students to take more-challenging courses in high school. Students who complete more-rigorous classes in high school are more successful in college and in the workplace than those who simply meet minimum graduation requirements, according to the Connecticut Business & Industry Association.
