Greensburg Elementary and Junior High Schools Receive National
Recognition from Project Lead The Way for Commitment to Empowering
Named a distinguished school for STEM curriculum and career readiness
GREENSBURG, IN – Greensburg Community Schools announced today that Greensburg Elementary
and Greensburg Junior High have been recognized as 2023-24 Project Lead The Way (PLTW)
Distinguished Schools. This honor is given to a select number of schools across the U.S. for providing
broad access to transformative learning experiences for students. PLTW is a national nonprofit
organization that serves millions of PreK-12 students and teachers in schools across the U.S., aiming to
make every child in every grade STEM successful.
“Intentional, deliberate curriculum focused on STEM is one of the top priorities for Greensburg Schools,”
said superintendent Tom Hunter. “Our staff strive to provide engaging lessons focused on STEM in our
classrooms each day. This recognition from PLTW shows this high level of commitment to STEM
education for students at Greensburg Community Schools.”
The PLTW Distinguished School recognition honors schools committed to increasing student access,
engagement, and achievement in their PLTW programs.
Studies show that students decide as early as elementary school whether they like, and think they are
good at math and science. Whether designing a car safety belt or building digital animations based on
their own short stories, PLTW Launch students engage in critical and creative thinking, build teamwork
skills, and develop a passion for and confidence in STEM subjects.
“We are honored to recognize Greensburg Elementary and Greensburg Junior High Schools for their
commitment to providing students with exceptional educational experiences while ensuring equitable
access to PLTW programs,” said Dr. David Dimmett, PLTW President and CEO. “We congratulate them
on this achievement and celebrate their dedication to empowering students with the knowledge and
skills to succeed, not only in STEM subjects, but also preparing them for future careers and life beyond
the classroom.”
