CITGO Workshop Winner – Anchorage Public School

Fueling Education Sweepstakes Winner Casey Sentz

Anchorage Public Schools Hosts STEM Workshop from Steve Spangler

November 10, 2018

Casey Sentz from Anchorage Public School in Anchorage, Kentucky was a little unsure when she received the news from the CITGO Fueling Education program coordinator. Casey was one of 70,000 sweepstake entries for a chance to receive a full-day of professional development from Steve Spangler for her school and a $5,000 gift certificate for related school supplies. “Yes… you are the winner!”
“Just one look around the room and you can see the value of our experience with Steve Spangler,” said Casey Sentz who entered the sweepstakes never expecting anything to come of it. “Honestly, I completely forgot about the content until I got an email and then a phone call from the people at CITGO. Everyone at the school was so excited.”
Spangler and his STEM Boot Camp team visited Anchorage Public School on November 10, 2018, armed with science lessons and STEM activities for teachers K-8 to experience first hand… and they did!
“We value our partnership with CITGO so much because of authenticity and genuine desire they have to help educators prepare students for a STEM-based career,” said Steve Spangler who has sharing his passion for helping teachers reach their peak potential in the classroom for more than 20 years. “Through their Fueling Education program, CITGO is providing both professional development and the resources needed for educators to create amazing experiences in science, technology, engineering and math for their students.”

“We welcome any opportunity that helps excite and invigorate our students and teachers when it comes to STEM,” said Kelley Ransdell, Superintendent of Anchorage Public Schools. “When teachers show up on their own time (Saturday) to learn how to be more effective at teaching STEM, the real winners and benefactors of this amazing professional development experience are our students.”
Casey Sentz was one of three grand prize winners in CITGO’s Fueling Education sweepstakes. CITGO partnered with Steve Spangler in 2016 to help foster educational opportunities in classrooms across the nation. Since then, CITGO has donated nearly a half a million dollars in much-needed classroom supplies with support from customers.
