Connecting our Communities: Midsouth – Q2 2021 Highlights
Optimum Sponsors Arkansas Tech STEM Institute VEX Robotics Championship - Hot Springs, AR - April 2021
Optimum sponsored the Arkansas Tech STEM Institute VEX Robotics Championship that was held in the Uptown Hot Springs Mall where 76 teams made up of K-12 students statewide competed with the robots they created from VEX parts over the past year. Teams had a program, a builder, and a driver and began strategizing, problem-solving and critical thinking in order to be successful in the competition. VEX Robotics gives students the opportunity to be inspired by creating something with technology and the ability to be hands-on with educational robotics.
Optimum Partners with Lunch Box Connection to Provide Free Lunch to Cabot Public School Students - Cabot, AR - March 2021
Optimum partnered with Lunch Box Connection to provide a free sack lunch to students of Cabot Public School District over spring break. Free to-go dinners were provided to families, and every child receiving dinner each evening, also received a lunch to take home. Unfortunately, for many kids, when school is out they may miss a meal. These meals are offered as a supplement for students who normally depend on a school’s free or reduced-price lunch plans and may not have another option for getting regular meals while school is out.
