January 29, 2015 – San Marcos
The H-E-B Tournament Of Champions has announced a $15,000 donation to Mathworks at Texas State University. This will support up to 40 student scholarships for the upcoming Junior Summer Math Camp (JSMC) program. This 20-year old program engages young students in doing in-depth mathematics while having fun. The program’s curriculum is filled with hands-on activities and guided discovery. Students develop a strong mathematical foundation and are more prepared for the new school year.
For over 27 years, H-E-B’s Tournament of Champions Charitable Trust has contributed to worthy causes throughout Texas. H-E-B’s Tournament of Champions Charitable Trust is a special fund that receives its money from an annual golf tournament sponsored by H-E-B’s vendor community. This golf tournament provides the funds for charitable projects and programs that have a positive impact on our communities within the areas of youth, children, education, and health.
Access to high quality summer academic programs is crucial for young students. Summer learning loss is strongly correlated with the achievement gap among students of different socioeconomic backgrounds. This support from the H-E-B Tournament of Champions directly addresses this issue by providing mathematical learning opportunities to students who would not otherwise have access to high quality summer programs. Additional support for the 2015 JSMC comes from Texas State University, San Marcos CISD, the KDK-Harman Foundation, and the Kodosky Foundation.
The upcoming 2015 JSMC in San Marcos runs June 8 - 19, and includes breakfast, snack, and a lunch for students. Parents and students may register now for the 2015 JSMC atwww.txstate.edu/mathworks.
