The Lieutenant Governor made the trip to Pella Monday afternoon to promote the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

She was joined by the President and CEO of Vermeer Corporation Mary Vermeer Andringa. They are the two co-chairs of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council.The presentation included demonstrations from Pella Community School students and the projects they have been working on in classes created from the initiative. Reynolds says the need to increase students in the STEM fields is on the rise and that the jobs are there for those who graduate in those fields.
