Saginaw County-based Hemlock Semiconductor recently awarded 11 recipients grants totaling $100,000 to help with learning opportunities, improvements to school safety and more.

Kolb and McAlear-Sawden elementary schools in Bay City are two of the recipients that won a CARE Grant from Hemlock Semiconductor Operations. More than 1,000 students will benefit from the funds.


The money will help the schools purchase nonfiction reading materials intended to get K-5 students excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The schools also will be able to buy STEM kits that will give hands-on experience with these subjects to all students, including those in special education or learning to speak English.

“We’re so excited by this opportunity to buy these materials for our students, and to give our teachers new ways to engage their classes on these important topics,” said Bay City Public Schools Superintendent Steve Bigelow. “HSC’s support could spark a lifelong love for math and science in our elementary students.”
