The Genesis Group is actively involved in initiatives that support, promote and enhance education in our community, which is why we have partnered with The Whitehouse Education Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to support educational excellence, promote innovation in teaching, enhance educational programs consistent with the goals of the District, and partner with the community to enrich the quality of education for all students in the District.
During Saturday evening’s fundraising event entitled “Celebration of Innovation: A Taste of Whitehouse”, in which The Genesis Group was recognized as a Diamond Sponsor, Genesis President Jim Nipp was announced as the incoming President/Chair of The WISD Education Foundation. The third annual event honored innovators of the year as well as grant recipients, and featured a variety of food items from local restaurants.
Resident Genesis software developer Yessika Guerra was part of a group of technology leaders who led over 40 area middle school girls in hands-on technology exercises. The event was called “STEM Like a Girl” (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) held at The Discovery Science Place. The event allowed young girls to collaborate with women in the community who work in STEM related fields. Yessika’s group used a cipher wheel to decrypt coded messages.
