The Scottsbluff Western Sugar facility is participating in the Adopt-A-School partnership with Longfellow Elementary School . On November 21st, Chief Chemist, Laura Garcia and Process Engineer, Amanda McAliney presenedt a program for the Longfellow students regarding processing sugar. This was a great hands-on learning experience for the students and faculty.
On March 2nd Western Sugar employees Nancy Ross, A/P Clerk, Jackie David, Process Engineer and Becky Stitt, HR Manager participated in “Read Across America Day” and read Dr. Seuss books to the Kindergarten through 2nd grade students. In the attached picture, Nancy Ross read to the 1st grade class. To add to this special event, Nancy’s grandson Ryder was a student in this class (the smiling boy on Nancy’s left).
We would like to thank all the volunteers who shared a bit of Western Sugar with the students at Longfellow this year.
