Flint Hills Resources presented a check for $1 million to the Texas State Aquarium Friday morning with the aim to join forces to provide specialized assistance to area educators.

The massive donation will be used to create the Flint Hills Resources Center for Excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Education at the Texas State Aquarium. Over the next five years, the Center will provide leadership in the STEM education community by offering assistance to area educators.

The goal is to produce gains in environmental, marine and general literacy among students.
