Project Lead the Way banner presentationA representative from Project Lead the Way (PLTW) presented South Glens Falls High School faculty and students with a banner to recognize the district’s longstanding participation in the program.

Carolyn Malstrom, Ph.D., PLTW Senior Director of School Engagement, visited South Glens Falls High School on Friday, Feb. 5, to present the commemorative banner.

South Glens Falls High School was one of the 10 original PLTW Schools remaining in the PLTW network. The program was started in 1997 and is still in existence today.

Students show their projects in the PLTW biotechnical engineering course. Malstrom visited South High’s PLTW Biotechnical Engineering course before presenting the banner.

“It is an honor to be here,” Malstrom told those gathered in the hallway outside the tech classrooms. “If Project Lead the Way hadn’t been successful here, it wouldn’t have grown.”

“We are proud of our teachers’ commitment and the students who are invested in the courses,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Patton, Ed.D.

Project Lead the Way is a nonprofit organization that delivers PLTW programs to more than 8,000 elementary, middle and high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The program began in upstate New York in 1997, and has expanded significantly since that time. Learn more about PLTW here: www.pltw.org.

Currently, 314 South High students are enrolled in 15 sections of seven different PLTW courses offered by the school.
