Lt. Governor Reynolds and Rivermont share a passion for STEM education.  Reynolds is the Co-Chair of the Governor’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Advisory Council and was the only elected official named to the “100 Women Leaders in STEM” by STEMconnector in 2012.  At Rivermont, students begin working with discipline-specific science teachers in Kindergarten and math courses allow them to accelerate to the most appropriate level, regardless of their age or grade.  Technology is interwoven into Rivermont’s curriculum, including Kindles, iPads, and a robotics program that spans grades 3-12.  We are thrilled to welcome a recognized STEM leader to Rivermont’s 126th Commencement!
