The Green Bay Packers and UScellular have announced the winner of the Leap for Learning program, awarding a $20,000 technology makeover to improve STEM education.
King Elementary School, located in Green Bay, was surprised with the donation, as well as a visit from Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon.

“We’re proud to join UScellular in awarding King Elementary School a well-deserved technology makeover. We’re committed to helping ensure students across the state have access to the resources they need to learn and grow through the Leap for Learning program,” said Packers Vice President of Sales and Business Development Craig Benzel.

In September, UScellular and the Green Bay Packers kicked off the second annual Leap for Learning program by inviting administrators and parents from across the state to nominate Wisconsin K-12 schools for a technology makeover.

A panel of judges reviewed all nominations and selected one deserving school to receive the award.
“The King Elementary Team is honored to have been chosen by UScellular and the Green Bay Packers for this award and donation. From coding curriculum to robotics to updated technology equipment, we have big plans to put the $20,000 donation to use in a way that will truly help our students learn without limits,” said Matt Malcore, principal of King Elementary School. “I am beyond grateful for the work of Michelle Flicek, our first grade teacher, who spearheaded the grant application and continuously strives to keep us on the leading edge of quality teaching and learning. Today, our students were so excited to see AJ Dillon and it was energizing to have him here autographing and raffling off items for our students and celebrating this momentous occasion with them.”

UScellular and the Green Bay Packers presented the $20,000 donation to King Elementary students during a surprise assembly.

“Technology upgrades are critical for students to grow and thrive, which is why we are honored to recognize King Elementary and its students with this donation,” said Marlon Bailey, director of sales for UScellular in Wisconsin and N. Illinois. “At UScellular, we are continuously looking for ways to invest in the next generation and promote the importance of a STEM education, and we’re proud to be partnering on Leap for Learning to do just that.”

In addition to the donation, UScellular will be donating 300 copies of AJ Dillon’s book, “Quadzilla Finds His Footing,” to libraries across the state through the Wisconsin Library Association. For more information on the USCellular’s donation, visit WisconsinLibraries.org.
