If you have been to the American Museum of Science and Energy lately, you may have noticed a new addition to the Great Smoky Mountains Biodiversity Towers in the shape of a tree stump.  The tree stump kiosk was purchased by the AMSE Foundation to upgrade the existing kiosk to further enhance the tower exhibit.  The kiosk helps AMSE visitors identify the various specimens in the towers.

"It's a great addition to the Biodiversity Towers and the tree stump shape complements the nature theme of the towers," said AMSE Executive Director Jim Comish.

The kiosk was purchased through funds raised by the AMSE Foundation's corporate membership program.  B&W Y-12 is the biggest supporter of that program, now three years running. 

"We are excited about being able to support AMSE with the purchase of this kiosk and look forward to doing more in the future," explained AMSE Foundation President Wayne Stevenson.

AMSE Foundation's corporate membership program offers customized benefit packages to companies interested in becoming AMSE corporate members.  In the case of B&W Y-12, every employee has the opportunity to become an individual member of the American Museum of Science and Energy for free and can upgrade to a family or grandparent membership at a discounted price.  B&W Y-12 also received a free facility rental, which they used to host the Martin Luther King Jr. celebration on Jan. 16, 2012.

"B&W Y-12 is happy to support the AMSE Foundation through the corporate membership program.  We have had many employees that have taken advantage of the AMSE membership benefit and we want to continue our commitment to supporting the Foundation's financial support of AMSE," said AMSE Foundation Board of Directors member and B&W Y-12 representative Bill Klemm.
