Hempstead, NY - November 30, 2016 - The Village of Hempstead recently teamed up with the Hempstead School District’s Alverta B. Gray Schultz Middle School and Adelphi University to help Hempstead students strengthen their skills in various fields related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). During the event students met and bonded with community leaders, including Village of Hempstead Deputy Mayor Luis Figueroa.
The program was a part of the Mayor’s effort to instill the values of President Obama’s nationwide My Brother’s Keeper initiative throughout the Village of Hempstead. The initiative is intended to provide talented young African American and Latino youth with valuable support in the areas of STEM and introduce them to potential career opportunities in those fields.
