Raytheon Company’s El Segundo Hispanic Network (HISNET) recently announced that it will sponsor the start-up of the Future Scientists and Engineers of America (FSEA) Club at Dolores Huerta Elementary School in Lennox, Calif. In addition to a $3,000 kick-off donation, Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems HISNET members will act as volunteer science instructors and mentors for more than 20 fifth grade students at Dolores Huerta Elementary. “As part of our continued commitment to FSEA and the children of Dolores Huerta Elementary, we[HISNET] sponsor a school supply drive and support 60 students during a field trip to the California Science Center.” Currently, five elementary schools in the Lennox School District serve grades kindergarten through fifth, with 95 percent of the total enrollment documented as Latino. Dolores Huerta Elementary is the smallest of the five schools and accommodates approximately 636 students.
