Midship Pipeline Company Donates $20,000 to Red River Technology Center’s STEM Program

Gift part of $160,000 in donations to eight schools in eight counties 

 

DUNCAN, Okla. – (October 16, 2018) Midship Pipeline Company announced today plans to donate $20,000 to Red River Technology Center and its STEM education programs. The gift will help purchase and furnish an enclosed trailer to be used as a mobile library for STEM activities.

 

“Midship’s gift will create more opportunities for our students to access STEM-related activities,” said Dennis Loafman, Superintendent, Red River Technology Center. “Red River Technology Center and its thirteen sending school districts thank Midship for their generosity to our center. This gift will allow us to equip our students with the tools to gain hands-on experience that will give them a competitive advantage as they enter the work force.”

 

The Midship Project is a natural gas pipeline project connecting new gas production from the emerging STACK and SCOOP plays in the Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma to growing Gulf Coast and Southeast markets via deliveries to existing pipelines. When complete, the approximately 200-mile pipeline will run through eight Western Oklahoma counties including Kingfisher, Canadian, Grady, Garvin, Stephens, Carter, Johnston and Bryan.

 

“We are grateful to Midship for this donation to help further STEM education programming in Stephens County,” said Rep. Marcus McEntire, R-Duncan. “I am confident this gift will make a difference for the students of Red River Technology Center.”

 

“Midship is honored to make these donations to eight important educational institutions in Oklahoma,” said Matt Barr, Director, Government and Public Affairs, Midship Pipeline Company. “We hope this gift inspires Oklahoma students, and aids in their preparation for jobs in STEM-related industries, helping open future opportunities so they can grow, thrive and reach their full potential. Midship is pleased to make this gift and wants to thank each school and its leadership for their efforts in helping us identify where the gifts can best be utilized.”

 

Midship worked closely with each institution to develop the STEM community grant program.  Through a grant submission process, institutions developed specific plans and gifts were tailored to each school’s needs.

 

“Midship’s STEM investment demonstrates their commitment to Western Oklahoma,” said Sen. Frank Simpson, R-Springer.  “We are grateful for their support of education in Oklahoma and thank Midship for their generosity that will benefit many Oklahomans.”
