Donation supports sports

Dynegy Inc., a national energy company, recently presented the Capitol Region Educational Council’s athletics program with a check for $100,000. This is the third consecutive year that the company has made the generous donation to support the continuation of middle school sports at five participating CREC middle schools for the 2018-2019 academic year. During the 2016-17 school year, 1,129 participation spots were filled and students took part in eight middle school sports at CREC Academy of Aerospace and Engineering, CREC Academy of Science and Innovation, CREC Metropolitan Learning Center for Global and International Studies, CREC Public Safety Academy, and CREC Two Rivers Magnet Middle School. Funds from Dynegy’s donation last year are being used for a scholarship award for a graduating senior, which was awarded to Natalia Mularzuk of New Britain, a student at CREC Academy of Science and Innovation.
