Liberty Lake, WASH. -December 3, 2018 - OpenEye 's is continuing its annual holiday tradition by gifting nearly 100 Central Valley School District (CVSD) students brand new bicycles that they themselves help to assemble.
On December 5 and 7, OpenEye employees will spend part of their day with the visiting students at OpenEye 's headquarters. Together, students and employees will participate in hands-on activities intended to foster an interest in technology and sciences. Students learn how to assemble a computer and complete a scavenger hunt using OpenEye 's surveillance cameras to find objects placed throughout the building. OpenEye then surprises students with a new bicycle, which they work with our employees to assemble.
"This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to our community and inspire the next generation to seek careers in technology and engineering," said Rick Sheppard, OpenEye 's Founder and CEO. "I look forward to participating in this event every year!"
Participating students range from first to sixth grade and have been carefully selected from schools all across the Central Valley School District based on criteria including need, good character, and school attendance. In addition to their bicycle, each student also receives a new helmet, a bike lock, and various other supplies.
OpenEye is proud to be celebrating its eighth year conducting this event to serve local students in positive and important ways, and to demonstrate our employee 's commitment to social responsibility through meaningful civic engagement.
