West Star Aviation reports the company completed their 2021 ELP Outreach Program at the Grand Junction, CO (GJT) facility, aiding a local middle school with two solar charging stations.
West Star works in correlation with other local supporting companies to design, build and fund environmental projects in the area. This particular project was started over three years ago with West Middle School and their STEM department. The charging stations will aid the students with the ability to charge all the electronics devices now being used in the classrooms (laptops, iPads, smart phones) while on lunch, breaks or between classes. The additional education of Environmental Sustainability helps foster these ideas for improvements at a young age.
“We put great emphasis on these local community projects and value our involvement with each and every one, while also improving our impact on the environment,” said Kraig Meyer, director of EHS (GJT).
