The Weathermatic team teaches a hygiene class at the school
One Hart student who played an important role in inspiring his fellow students was Brendan Bruner, son of Weathermatic’s Executive Vice President of Sustainability Services, Brodie Bruner. Bruner regularly travels to Latin America to help drill wells the company has funded through their social business model, Save Water | Give Life. When Brendan’s 4th grade Spanish class studied Latin American countries, last year, he shared with his class about the children dying from dirty water and poor sanitation and his dad’s trips to drill water wells there. Brendan’s father couldn’t be happier to see the cause his company is so passionate about gathering support through his children and their peers.
As a part of Lovejoy Independent School District, Hart Elementary encourages students to work for justice in their community. According to Hart Principal, Kathy Foster, “A well-rounded education inspires children to think outside of what they know, to be involved in their local community but also globally-minded. It is always our goal as educators to see our students make a difference in the world.”
