Crystal Flash renews partnership with Grand Rapids Public Museum for 2021-22 school year

Grand Rapids, MI – The Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) announced today the renewed partnership with Crystal Flash to bring students from rural schools to the Museum for educational field trips by underwriting busing costs for the 2021-2022 school year, thanks to a generous grant.

Rural schools who visit the GRPM for the 2021-2022 school year may be eligible for reimbursement for transportation costs, thanks to the support of Crystal Flash. Reimbursement amounts will depend on distance traveled to the Museum, and must be approved in advance of visiting.

“The employee-owners of Crystal Flash are excited to continue our commitment to Michigan’s rural students by renewing our partnership with Grand Rapids Public Museum for the 2021-2022 school year,” said Brad Morrill, Chief Customer Experience Officer, Crystal Flash. “As a Michigan-based and 100% employee-owned company, giving back to the communities where we live and work is an integral part of who we are. The “Fueling Creative Learning” transportation program is a significant component of those efforts.”

“Thank you to Crystal Flash for their continuous generosity in making the Museum experience available to students who may not typically have the opportunity to visit the GRPM due to transportation expenses,” said Erin Koren, Director of Education, Grand Rapids Public Museum. “This partnership with Crystal Flash is vital to support the Museum’s goal to reduce barriers for entrance. Through this partnership, the GRPM looks forward to welcoming more curious minds to the Museum to learn through immersive exhibit experiences and programs which feature the Museum’s primary source artifacts.”
