Cox Radio announced that its Cox Marketing Services division has launched its newest initiative, “Operation Success,” with the support of Northrop Grumman. Operation Success is a campaign designed to promote science, technology and math education in Central Florida. The program will launch on June 8th and June 9th at Cox Radio Broadcast Studios’ Orange County Public Schools Educators’ Luncheons.
The Educators’ Luncheons are an opportunity for technology-based companies within Orlando to meet and interact with Orange County Public Educators. Through this initiative, Cox Marketing Solutions will facilitate a relationship with the educators to bring new technologies into the classroom through mentorship programs, in-class demonstrations, aid with science fairs, among other activities.
“It is our community’s responsibility to come together for Central Florida students, and Operation Success is another example of Cox Radio’s ability to bring a range of community resources together for a great cause, ,” said Kelly Wortmann, Senior Marketing Specialist for Cox Marketing Services. “Our region houses several very successful, technology-based companies that have the passion and ability to help the dedicated teachers of Orange County take science, technology and math education in the classroom to the next level.”
Northrop Grumman, The Virtual Reality Medical Center and Cox Radio are among the tech-savvy companies who are asking employees to partner with Central Florida educators in support of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math within the classroom.
“Central Florida is fortunate to have so many high-tech companies based right here,” said Bill Duerden, Senior Marketing Specialist of Cox Marketing Services.” “Giving teachers the opportunity to interact with these technologies will allow students to open their minds to the unlimited possibilities that lie ahead if they focus on math and science. From gaming and simulation to robotic engineering and biomedical, Orlando has become a technology mecca and many residents don’t even realize it.”
“We have to make parents, students and our community aware of all the opportunities that exist right in their backyard,” said Debbie Morel, Vice President /General Manager of Cox Radio. “We also want to give dedicated companies like Northrop Grumman the chance to showcase their impressive commitment to Science and Technology education.”
