WINNSBORO — The Midlands STEM Institute received a generous gift last week from Element Electronics, Winnsboro’s local television manufacturer.

Kevin Thomas, chairman of the board for Midlands STEM Institute, and director Marie Milam were on hand to receive six televisions to be used at the school.

Milam was thrilled at the donation.

“This is awesome. This will help improve security,” she said. “One will be in the front lobby when you first come in, it will scroll. A couple will go to classrooms, and then we’ll have one in the cafeteria, multi-purpose room for when we do programs and things like that.”

Midlands STEM Institute, which opened last August with 79 students, currently has 149 students enrolled. With the rapid expansion, donations such as this become even more appreciated.

Jim Etter said Element feels it is critical to contribute as much as it can.

“(Element Electronics president) Mike O’Shaughnessy’s commitment is to the community, and we’ve been supporting the schools,” Etter said. “Education is important and doing things like this for the schools is. We did it for the high school, the middle school, and so we did it for the charter school. It’s important to help the kids out.”
