Catalyst Maria hosts DiscoverE today!

Catalyst Maria hosted members of Northrop Grumman today, including Catalyst Board member Steven D’Souza, as part of the company’s  DiscoverE program!  During their visit Steven and co-worker Marc Gaddis spoke with the school’s middle school Project Lead the Way classes to share their engineering experiences and involve students in hands-on, engineering-related classroom projects and activities.  We are incredibly grateful for the partnership and support of Northrop Grumman and Steven at both Catalyst campuses through DiscoverE and other programs!

Catalyst Circle Rock’s Blacks in Wax living history museum

Catalyst Circle Rock scholars and staff created an incredible experience for their school community this week through their Blacks in Wax living history museum! This museum allowed attendees to travel through important events in African-American history, and was the culmination of months of preparation by numerous CCR staff members and scholars. Pictured below are scholar participants with Principal Ms. Jamison-Dunn- incredible work by all involved!

Catalyst Maria hosts One Goal CEO Jeff Nelson!

Jeff Nelson, founder and CEO of OneGoal, visited Catalyst Maria to share with our scholars that they are the highest performing OneGoal cohort in the country!!  OneGoal is currently located in 5 different states, and Catalyst Maria is honored to partner with this organization.  CM scholars shared presentations about what has made them so successful in the program, and they are pictured with Mr. Nelson below (the image links to the OneGoal website where you can learn more). Great work by Ms. Fawaz and the CM team!
