Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote and Honeywell Hometown Solutions President Tom Buckmaster helped community members and teachers to mark the opening of Ecole Nationale Jacob Martin Henriquez, a state-of-the-art, nine-building public school complex. The school, which will also feature free meals, will serve students in kindergarten through seventh grade.

The school was built using contemporary, sustainable building methods and is designed to withstand any potential future earthquakes, the firm said. During the construction process, Honeywell trained local builders in modern earthquake-resistant construction and eco-friendly techniques.
