Thanks to the Szymanczyk Family and a group of supporters who call themselves The Sanibel Sea School Friends, Sanibel Sea School was able to purchase three gently-used vans for use in the organization’s educational programs and camps. 

Sanibel Sea School’s teaching staff members, who often drive students to locations around the island for field-based ocean learning programs, explained that the aging buses previously used by the school were beginning to require frequent and costly maintenance, and were a source of stress for drivers. 

"Over the summer, I was so nervous that the bus would break down every time I led a field trip," said educator Nicole Finnicum. "It is such a relief to have newer vehicles that work properly, so I can stay completely focused on giving our students a great ocean experience," she added. 

Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. To learn more, visit sanibelseaschool.org.
