STEM retreat hosted to engage community

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - Officials with the Phenix City School District and Discovery Education hosted a leadership retreat that focused on STEM, which stands for science, technology, engineering and math.

The event engaged educators, administrators, community members, and business leaders from across Phenix City to develop a collective vision and strategy for creating a culture of STEM in the school system.

"We want to see all of these students excel not only in test scores but also in life. So we really want to have students that see a higher vision of themselves and view themselves as successful in their careers in the future and have the skills to achieve that."

The retreat was held Thursday at the Profession Development Center from 1 - 4 p.m.
