ORLANDO, Fla.  — Massey Services recently rewarded three Killarney Elementary School students with two VIP Massey Skybox suite tickets to an Orlando Magic game. The reward came as a result of the students top scores in a contest, “Massey Math Miles,” sponsored by Massey PrevenTech Commercial Services.  The contest challenged students to improve their math skills over a three month period.

Massey Services recently adopted Killarney Elementary School as part of the Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association (CFHLA) Adopt-A-School program. Earlier this month, Massey’s PrevenTech Commercial Services division was officially named an Allied Member under the leadership of Vice President of Commercial Services, Paul Giordano.

“This program is an extension of our ongoing relationship with Orange County Public Schools and gives us the opportunity to reward children in our community for their academic achievements,” said Tony Massey, president and COO of Massey Services, Inc. “We were excited to be a part of this and look forward to more opportunities similar to this in the future.”

In addition to the Adopt-A-School program, Massey Services PrevenTech Commercial Division is partnered with Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) to provide pest prevention services throughout the district during the coming year. The PrevenTech team will work alongside the OCPS internal pest prevention team to ensure that pests are prevented in learning institutions throughout Orange County.
