What does it take to run the district's largest robotics program? Without the contributions by many organizations and individuals, we would simply not exist. These folks are our heroes, and we cannot thank them enough.
The Speed School has been our primary sponsor since 2016. Through a generous donation by John and Wallace Sanders, we have been provided yearly funding to purchase the myriad of parts necessary for out bots. The school also furnishes engineering students who assist us with design and counseling.
Frank and Joann Luecke are the godparents of FIRST Robotics in Kentucky. They started the Louisville area's first FRC team in 2009 and have subsequently helped many more find their footing. Their gracious donation will fund the Centrons well into our future.
In 2018, we were awarded the Argosy Foundation's FRC Rookie Grant, which was instrumental in jump-starting our first and second years. Argosy has been a key partner of FIRST, and it is responsible for the success of numerous teams.
We were the recipient of a Toyota Foundation FRC grant in 2019. As their website states: "We’re focused on educating today’s students to build tomorrow’s leaders. We support students throughout the life of their education – from kindergarten to high school and beyond."
AT&T Kentucky donated two, top-of-the-line VEX competition kits to our program in 2018. It was a part of a larger grant that was given to the school district. We built those bots and won some trophies, so their contribution was very welcome!
A trusted corporate presence in Louisville. They have designed complex refining, midstream, chemical, utility, and food and beverage systems. C&I sponsors our year-end maker-faire by providing our students with much needed electronic components.
It all started with Verizon. In 2016, we applied for a Verizon Education Grant with the goal of building a makerspace for Central High School. They came through, and the result is one of the best facilities for student learning and engagement in Kentucky.
Mike Naegle from Argo has been an advisor to our program for five years. The company has donated much needed electronic components.
The mamma bear of the Centrons. She might as well be the head coach. You definitely need this woman when you go on a field trip.
These folks help us with our tournaments, they help us get donations, and they are always there for us.
Volunteering and providing food at events, donating items, and allowing their students to work on robots during class time. What would we do without them?
Millwork and advice.
Our coaches have put way too much money of their own into the program. We love those guys!
