July 14, 2021—Through a generous donation from CFISD community partner Landmark Industries/Timewise Food Stores, Truitt Middle School will fund a new robotics club for the 2021-2022 school year.

The $500 grant was a pleasant surprise for the campus, Truitt Principal Yvette Garcia said. Gary Rasmussen, Landmark Industries director of training, delivered the good news.

“The timing was perfect as we were trying to think of ways to fund our robotics club,” Garcia said. “This $500 was unexpected and put a big smile on my face when I received the email.”

The robotics club will be the first at Truitt.

“Creating a club like this will make a huge difference,” Garcia said. “Our students have been stuck at home for a year and a half and up to two years now, and this is going to give them another option. We keep many of our students for tutoring and other academic components, but we’re going to add some fun with it this year.”
