Funding helps prepare students for success in college and in life.
Houston, TX, January 5, 2015—Continuing its efforts to be a positive force in the local community, Aries Building Systems today announced it made a significant donation to KIPP Houston. With its donation to KIPP Houston’s Season of Gratitude Holiday Drive, Aries Building Systems helps support local students by preparing them for success in college and in life.
“We are thrilled to lend our support to KIPP in their quest to help students in underserved communities pursue and achieve their dreams,” said Michael Bollero, Jr., Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Aries Building Systems. “We believe that all children deserve a quality education, and we love KIPP’s commitment to helping every child receive a high quality education that sets them up for success in life.”
KIPP currently serves 59,000 students in 162 schools all across the country. The Houston chapter works with 11,500 students in 22 schools across the area. Nearly 90% of KIPP students across the nation come from low-income families and would otherwise be unable to access a high quality education. Students who go through KIPP’s program have a greater college success rate than the average U.S. college graduation rate and are four times likelier to graduate college than students from low-income communities by their mid-twenties.
“This donation to KIPP is part of our ongoing commitment to supporting education and doing everything we can to be a positive force in the community,” said Bollero, Jr. “We’re proud to be able to bring smiles, excitement, and learning to so many children across the Houston area.”
