Thank You Cummings Foundation!

Woburn Memorial High School (WMHS) is one of the 130 local nonprofits to receive a grant of $100,000 through Cummings Foundation’s $20 Million Grant Program. The high school was chosen from a total of 738 applicants during a competitive review process.

The Cummings $20 Million Grant Program supports Massachusetts nonprofits that are based in and primarily serve Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties. WMHS has identified a need within our school and community for a trained workforce in manufacturing and biotechnology. We will address this need through the implementation of two Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Innovation Pathways in our school – Advanced Manufacturing and Biotechnology.

Innovation Pathways are designed for students to have coursework (including college and college-level courses) and relevant work experience through internships and capstone projects in specific, high demand industries. Community and industry partnerships have been created to provide students with real-world work experience.

With the assistance of the Cummings Foundation’s grant funding, WMHS will acquire durable equipment, hire extra staff for teaching and support, implement Project Lead The Way and other courses, provide professional development, transport students to industry partner sites, and develop marketing and advertising materials.
