Donation Designated for Non-profit Cloverleaf School’s Science Programs
ATLANTA, GA (September 24, 2012) – Speakers at the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry's (CPI) annual technical conference today presented a donation to the Cloverleaf School in Atlanta, GA. The $2,500 donation, which is designated for the school’s science education programs, was presented to Gregory Dobrasz, co-founder of the Cloverleaf School, at the opening session of the 2012 Polyurethanes Technical Conference. The conference runs through Wednesday at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta.
“We are honored to present this donation to such a valuable organization on behalf of our conference speakers,” said CPI Senior Director Lee Salamone. “The Cloverleaf School’s science education programs inspire the next generation of scientists and technical professionals, and we are proud to contribute to their important work.”
The Cloverleaf School is a private, non-profit elementary school that specializes in educating children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), high-functioning autism, Asperger’s, anxiety and other learning differences. The school was founded in January 2012 by four families that were brought together by their shared experiences of raising children with neurological processing differences. As a result of the school’s work, its students are equipped with the skills to navigate the world with confidence.
“We at the Cloverleaf School are so grateful for ACC's interest in our program and for your generosity and partnership,” said Dobrasz. “At Cloverleaf, we believe every child's outcome can be influenced and is not a predetermined and immutable destiny.”
Featuring more than 60 technical presentations, the 2012 Polyurethanes Technical Conference is a thoroughly comprehensive forum that draws the attendance of industry professionals from around the world. The conference provides industry leaders and professionals with an opportunity to hear about the latest technical innovations and issues affecting the United States and the global polyurethanes industry.
