PPG Transforms Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Early College in Denver, Provides STEM Grant

As part of its global New Paint for a New Start initiative, PPG has completed a transformative makeover to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Early College in Denver and provided a STEM grant.

The New Paint for a New Start initiative is part of the company’s Colorful Communities program, which aims to protect and beautify the neighborhoods where PPG operates worldwide.

“PPG employees from every region are coming together once again to protect and beautify schools and learning spaces to inspire bright starts for students,” said Malesia Dunn, Executive Director, PPG Foundation and Corporate Global Social Responsibility. “For young students, every day is an opportunity for a new start to learn, grow and develop in a positive learning environment. We are aiming to help them start each day with a positive outlook and create joyful spaces where they feel supported and engaged.”

More than 30 company employees volunteered to beautify the school, which serves college-bound students in grades six through 12.

PPG also supplied the school funding for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The school will use the funds to enhance its STEM efforts and support programs like state competitions and certification classes.
