Education grant for “Manufacturing Enterprise” named in honor of Smith Brothers Insurance.

The Foundation for West Hartford Public Schools recently announced a grant to honor Glastonbury-based insurance broker Smith Brothers Insurance. The Smith Brothers Insurance Grant will fund “Manufacturing Enterprise – The Freedom Pen Project” during the 2017-2018 school year.

“Smith Brothers supports The Foundation for West Hartford Public Schools and the wonderful work they do for students in the community. We are especially proud of the actual project the Smith Brothers Insurance Grant will fund,” said Leyna Erickson, client executive – commercial lines at Smith Brothers. “We work very closely with manufacturers and industry groups such as the Connecticut Machining & Tooling Association, and we know that one of the greatest challenges the manufacturing and engineering industries will face over the next decade will be to recruit new talent. This project goes a long way towards getting the next generation interested in these industries as potential career paths and we’re happy to support that.”

The Foundation for West Hartford Public Schools supports educational projects, programs, and initiatives that enhance and enliven the classroom experience for all West Hartford Public School students.
