Boeing and Tinker Business & Industrial Park support area Alternative School | Posted 03/23/2007

Maj. General Ben Robinson (Ret.), who currently serves as the Area Manager for Boeing Aerospace operations in the State of Oklahoma, recently provided the keynote speech during an end-of-school awards ceremony for high school students attending the Jim Thorpe Academy Alternative Education Program in Shawnee.

The awards program was sponsored by Intervest Development Limited Partnership (IDLP), a sister organization to Tinker Industrial Developers and Tinker Business & Industrial Park in Midwest City, TBIP Managing General Partner Warren Thomas, explained.

"Through IDLP, our affiliated organization which also operates in the Shawnee area, Intervest and TBIP staff became involved as sponsors of the alternative school through the Shawnee Rotary Club," Thomas said. "We seized the opportunity to sponsor the alternative school as a way to reach out to a particular student population where we felt we could have a real impact," he said.

Two events were sponsored by Intervest for the alternative school students. In addition to the "Academy Awards" event which was held last week, Intervest also recently held a Franklin Covey for Teens workshop.
