OSHS becoming STEAM Academy

The Oliver Springs community took a giant leap into the future last week by raising more than $120,000 for a planned STEAM Academy at the high school.

The Academy, focusing on science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics, is the idea of the Oliver Springs Alumni Education Foundation.

“We plan not just a STEAM academy, but a great STEAM Academy,” said Dr. Steve Smith, an Oliver Springs dentist and Foundation director who has been instrumental in getting the project off the ground.
