Yext founders give back to Thomas Jefferson High School to support STEM education

Today, Yext announced a donation to the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology to support students pursuing a STEM education. Yext’s gift will be used to support the school's "Yext computer systems lab," where senior students can conduct independent study in computer systems and software. This donation has particular meaning for several founding members of Yext, including Howard Lerman, CEO, Tom DIxon, COO, Sean MacIsaac, CTO, and Alok Bhushan, EVP of Finance, because they met for the first time as students at TJ high school. They are proud to give back to the school they credit for their early passion for technology and ultimate success as entrepreneurs in the tech industry.
