Ferguson to pay for 5300 field trips to Colonial Williamsburg

Ferguson has partnered with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation to fund educational field trips for approximately 5,300 Peninsula fourth graders. The field trip lessons correspond with the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs). The grant covers the cost of admission and transportation to Colonial Williamsburg’s Revolutionary City for all fourth graders in the Gloucester, Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and York County public school systems during the 2013-14 academic year.

Ferguson also funds Colonial Williamsburg’s Electronic Field Trips, Emmy-award winning live internet events and television broadcasts for grades 4-8. Approximately six million students nationwide view an Electronic Field Trip each year.

"Ferguson is committed to providing and enhancing educational opportunities for students," said Ferguson CEO Frank Roach. "Colonial Williamsburg is a great learning venue right in our own backyard. As a company, we are honored to be able to provide students with the chance to experience it firsthand."

"Our core mission is to use history as a means of teaching our youth to become responsible, contributing citizens in society," said Colin Campbell, President and CEO of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. "We are thankful and thrilled that Ferguson has partnered with us to enable our local school districts to discover that Colonial Williamsburg has to offer. The Ferguson Cares program, the company’s community engagement program, is a superb example of community involvement and corporate responsibility."
