Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. - Jan 12, 2017 - ERIMAX, Inc. CEO Eric Franklin, founder of the Eric Franklin Entrepreneurial Accelerator (EFEA) and author of Peanut Butter Principles: 47 Leadership Lessons Every Parent Should Teach Their Kids, is sponsoring a Hidden Figures Movie Screening.
Local public high school students from Calvert County will receive free tickets to see the movie Hidden Figures at the Flagship Cinemas in Prince Frederick, MD. The event is being underwritten by ERIMAX and EFEA and is taking place on Martin Luther King Holiday, Monday, January 16, 2017. All available showtimes that day have been purchased by the sponsors and the tickets donated to the students.
HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible little-known story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) — brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
“I have been a staunch advocate of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs since I received my undergraduate degree in Biology from Hampton University. As a resident of Calvert County, I realized that no movie theatre was showing the movie in the county and my family had to travel outside the county to view the film. This movie is such an important, inspiring and historic film; I wanted to find a way to make the number one movie in America easily available for all Calvert youth,” said Eric Franklin. “This is a wonderful movie for everyone in the community. However, as high school students are contemplating future education and career decisions, I thought it would be especially poignant for them to view this film to gain an understanding of the importance and prominence of choosing a career in a STEM field.”
As a Day of Service Project for the King holiday, ERIMAX, Inc. employees are volunteering to help make this day special for students. All tickets will be distributed by the school system.
