The Naval Aviation Museum Foundation (NAMF) is delighted to announce a recent contribution of $20,000 from Florida Power and Light Company (FPL) towards the museum’s new Homeschool Academy. The check presentation ceremony took place on the base this morning.
Homeschool Academy: The Museum Classroom was initiated by NAMF in January 2023, with a focus on families homeschooling children aged 5 to 18. FPL’s generous grant will enable NAMF to extend the program’s reach throughout the entire school year, benefiting the homeschooling community.
“We’re profoundly thankful for this contribution. FPL’s generosity empowers us to provide hands-on STEM activities and unique museum tours to our growing local homeschool community year-round,” said Dianna Hayden, Director of Education for NAMF.
Every quarter, FPL collaborates with nonprofit organizations in Northwest Florida through the NextEra Energy Foundation, directing contributions to programs aligned with the company’s business objectives. One such objective, named “Opportunity,” focuses on endorsing educational initiatives that eliminate barriers to growth and foster the development of future leaders in the state.
J.T. Young, VP and General Manager of FPL’s Northwest Florida region, expressed the company’s pride in participating as a community partner and supporting the expansion of the Naval Aviation Museum Homeschool Academy’s STEM curriculum.
“We are thrilled to support their crucial work by offering essential financial resources for acquiring necessary equipment and supplies. This assistance will aid them in delivering a hands-on, interactive learning experience for homeschooled students,” Young said.
