Alabama School of Cyber Tech and Engineering recipient of $200,000 RTX donation

The Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering Foundation has received a $200,000 donation from defense and aerospace giant RTX. The gift comes after a previous $4 million donation from the Huntsville-based corporation.

“The future of aerospace and defense begins with our youngest generations, nurturing the endless curiosity that leads to lifelong learning,” said Michael Cox, Huntsville Site Executive for RTX. “Solving the world’s toughest challenges demands bold innovation and investing in STEM education at schools like ASCTE ensures the next generation can meet the needs, anticipate the challenges, and capture the opportunities of our ever-evolving technologies and aerospace, and defense.”

 

Matt Massey, President of ASCTE, expressed gratitude to RTX for its history of substantial gifts to the high tech school.

“We are thrilled to receive this additional support from RTX,” he said.

“Their continued investment in our school and our students is a testament to their commitment to STEM education and the future of our workforce.”

ASCTE is one of three public magnet high schools serving students throughout Alabama. It is the only public high school in the country to integrate cyber technology and engineering into all academic disciplines.
