The I-4 Ultimate project team is helping deserving students start the school year right.

At the project’s four area offices and its central hub office in Maitland, many members of the I-4 Ultimate team donated thousands of supplies, including notebooks, crayons, glue sticks, pencils, pens and markers, as well as a selection of personal hygiene provisions. The supplies were delivered on Aug. 18.

“As many students in our community were gearing up for the new school year, our SGL Constructors team came together to help equip these kids with the school supplies they will need,” said Rodney Renix, SGL Constructors DBE (Disadvantaged Business Enterprise) Compliance Manager for the I-4 Ultimate project. “This is an exciting time for these students, and we are delighted to make a contribution towards their success this school year.”

The four schools – Hungerford Elementary School, Nap Ford Community School, Pineloch Elementary School and Catalina Elementary School – each received more than 1,100 items. These schools are located near the heart of the I-4 Ultimate project, which stretches 21 miles from west of Kirkman Road in Orange County to east of State Road 434 in Seminole County.

The scope and services of the I-4 Ultimate project affects and shapes the larger Central Florida community. Project partners believe that being involved in the school drive helps extend the team’s community involvement beyond the construction of I-4.

“In construction, we can’t do our jobs without the right tools, so it is rewarding to our team to give the students of this community a few of the tools that they will need to excel in school,” said Jon Walker, SGL Constructors Program Project Manager for the I-4 Ultimate project.
