NORTH BALTIMORE, OHIO – Prism Propane and CoBank presented a total of $10,000 in donations to Van Buren Local Schools. The checks from both organizations were presented to Van Buren Treasurer Alex Binger and Vice President of the Van Buren School Board Jeff Salisbury. The school plans to use these funds for various school projects including, funding the Elementary Positive Behavior Interventions and Support Programs, Design Challenge Projects and a printer to make poster-size projects.
Van Buren Superintendent Tim Myers said, “This grant will help us expand and develop some programs and projects started in the district. Projects at each of our building levels will benefit, including our Elementary Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports program (PBIS) and our developing path of integrating Project Based Learning in our middle school and high school through Design Challenge Projects. A poster maker printer and additional supplies for these programs will be the areas in which these funds will be utilized.”
Prism Propane offers a wide variety of services including its recent introduction of Propane Autogas for vehicle fleet fueling. In 2015, Prism Propane introduced its Autogas Propane fueling station as a “greener” fueling option in northwest Ohio. Van Buren, Elmwood and Wood Lane Schools are just a few of the area school systems which purchase Propane Autogas as an alternative to diesel. Propane gas costs less and cuts down on vehicle maintenance – a savings for the school district and its taxpayers.
Prism Propane was formed in 1998 as a for-profit company and affiliate of the HWE non-profit organization to offer economically priced propane gas services to customers in Allen, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Putnam, Sandusky, Seneca, Wyandot and Wood counties.
