Lockheed Martin donates $25,000 to assist MCS with tech for students

MADISON – Lockheed Martin gave a generous $25,000 to Madison City Schools to help purchase technology for students. The school district said the money will be used for Chromebooks and hotspots to meet the growing demand caused by virtual education.

Elizabeth Dotts Fleming with The Schools Foundation of Greater Huntsville facilitated the $75,000 gift from Lockheed to be split evenly between school systems in Madison City, Huntsville and Madison County.

“This generous donation will help expand our inventory of electronic devices in this school year that has a greater focus on virtual learning platforms. With the additional devices this money will purchase, we will be able to better serve students,” said Dr. Ed Nichols, superintendent of Madison City Schools.

The $75,000 gift to local schools is part of Lockheed Martin’s commitment to provide resources for the improvement of distance learning capabilities. The technology money is part of a $357,502 outreach to Alabama this year which is also assisting vocational programs in community colleges, area food banks, and the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville’s Emergency Relief Fund.

Since the pandemic began, Lockheed Martin has donated $21.3 million to various causes across 19 states including schools, hospitals, first responders, food banks and more.
