SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- A new partnership between Boeing [NYSE: BA] and the Kelly Heritage Foundation - an educational nonprofit organization affiliated with Port San Antonio - will expand STEM learning and workforce development across South Texas. The seven-year partnership and $2.3 million investment will strengthen the region's STEM talent and enhance programming supported by the foundation, including those developed by the San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology (SAMSAT), headquartered at the Port's tech campus.

"Boeing is a crown jewel of American business, and I'm honored that Texas is a key part of their company. For nearly 25 years, San Antonio has been home to an aircraft maintenance and modernization hub, where work on the C-17, F-15, and F/A-18 takes place. Port San Antonio now houses 80 employers and 16,000 workers and has a $6 billion impact on the local economy. Boeing Center at Tech Port will introduce young Texans to the advanced technologies that will drive the workforce of tomorrow," said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott during a ceremony held today at SAMSAT announcing the partnership.
