GRACE PRESIDENT TO COMMEMORATE FIVE YEAR EDUCATIONAL PARTNERSHIP

 GRACE PRESIDENT TO COMMEMORATE FIVE YEAR EDUCATIONAL PARTNERSHIP
 J. P. Bolduc, president and chief operating officer, W. R. Grace & Co., will be the keynote speaker at tomorrow's luncheon celebration in the Rouse Building's Spear Center commemorating the fifth anniversary of the Howard County School System's educational partnership program.
 Grace is observing its fourth year as a participant in the partnership program with its support to Atholton High School. The partnership, which is the largest of its kind for Grace, promotes student learning in math and science and provides professional development for Atholton's teachers. To date, nearly $400,000 in contributions were made by Grace for scholarships, educational technology and mentor programs.
 Additionally, Grace supports the partnership through its Research Center also located in Columbia, Md. The center, with its 460 scientists, technicians and support personnel, conducts research in catalysis, organic and polymer chemistry, and biotechnology.
 In his address, Bolduc will warn of America's educational crisis. His theme will note that while the U.S. has won the Cold War, it is losing the economic war due to a poorly educated work force.
 Grace is the world's largest specialty chemicals company with a leadership position in health care. Sales for 1991 exceeded $6 billion.
 Atholton High School opened in 1966 as a public four-year comprehensive high school. The student population totals approximately 1,100. Part of the nationally recognized Howard County Public School System, Atholton is located on the edge of the planned community of Columbia, Md.
