Tronox, a Henderson manufacturing plant, donated $5,000 to benefit the Basic High School Robotics Team, Oct. 21. This is the third year they will be serving as the team’s primary sponsor.

The Basic team, a longstanding club at Basic High School, teaches students the engineering components of robotics, and how to build robots through advanced production methods.

Mark Reed, head of the Basic High School Robotics Team says, “Since Tronox has come on as a sponsor, our team has had the ability to work on more advanced robotics machines and participate in national competitions.

“Through these competitions, the team has earned recognitions and learned from other team displays. All of this would not be possible without Tronox’s generous donation each year. We are truly grateful to have Tronox as a community sponsor and partner.”

Rick Stater, Henderson Plant Manager, says, “We are proud to give back to such a dedicated and hardworking set of students.

“Charitable giving is a huge part of Tronox’s corporate culture, and providing the means to support educational opportunities for our youth is truly rewarding for our company and employees.”

The Basic High School Robotics Team is lead by William Fitzpatrick, who started the team in 2002. The program continues to grow in numbers and capabilities each year, and is open to junior and senior students.
