The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History selected Burleson ISD’s STEAM Academy at Stribling Elementary as the recipient of its 2018 President’s Award. Museum President Van A. Romans presented the award to Stribling Principal Dr. Jim Calvin in a ceremony at the elementary school on Friday, May 11.
Stribling Elementary began on the path to becoming a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) school two years ago. With the commitment of their administration, educators, families, and district, Stribling has grown to become a leader and model for other schools choosing the STEAM journey. The Museum chose Stribling for the President’s Award for their innovation in education, their commitment to becoming a community of learners and the school’s belief that children’s education always comes first.
“The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History was founded by educators more than 75 years ago and stands as a testament to the power of impactful education to create curious, lifelong learners,” said Van A. Romans, Museum President. “The success of STEAM Academy at Stribling Elementary represents a similar commitment to innovation in education and its community of learners. It is a place where the education of its students always comes first.”
The President’s Award was established in 2011 by the Board of Trustees of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History to recognize a commitment to high achievement and creative learning in North Texas Schools.
