As a staunch advocate and graduate in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curriculum, Eric Franklin, ERIMAX, Inc. CEO, founder of the Eric Franklin Entrepreneurial Accelerator (EFEA), author of the Peanut Butter Principles: 47 Leadership Lessons Every Parent Should Teach Their Kids and philanthropist decided to create a special screening of the movie for the community. On Monday, Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday, there will be a Hidden Figures Movie Screening in Calvert County Maryland. This is significant because the movie, despite its huge numbers at the box office, wasn’t being shown in Calvert County, Maryland.
Additionally, as high school students are now making career decisions especially those pursuing STEM careers, Mr. Franklin thought it was especially important for them to see the movie and its important messages. So, he created this opportunity for his information technology company, ERIMAX Inc., and foundation (EFEA) to sponsor and purchase tickets for every high schooler in Calvert County. Who Should Attend: Tickets are free for high school students from all local public high schools in Calvert County. When: Monday, January 16, 2017 . The event takes place on the Martin Luther King National Holiday and is considered a day of service for employees of ERIMAX, Inc. There will be four screenings, 10:00am, 12:30, 3:30 and 6:45 pm.
