This morning, representatives from the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport and the Information Warfare Training Group came together with teachers and faculty from Reeves Elementary in Long Beach to sign a partners in education proclamation.
This is part of the NCBC’s outreach program where they choose a school to sponsor each year.
Individuals from the Seabee Base will now work hand in hand with teachers at Reeves Elementary to help mentor children at the school. Commanding Officer of Information Warfare Training Group Mathias Roth said, “This is an excellent opportunity to extend our family outside the gates and the walls of the base and try to make an impact, not only for the students, but also the teachers and everybody here who is working so hard to give these guys the best possible opportunity in life.”
They plan to make regular visits to the school and read to and with the students.
