Mercy High School honors lab donors
November 2, 2018
Two renovated science labs were dedicated and donors to the project were recognized Oct. 23 at Mercy High School in Omaha.
More than 150 donors gave a total of $800,000 to the project, including the Mammel Family Foundation, Dr. C.C. and Mabel Criss Foundation and Lozier Foundation. The school also received a $40,000 federal grant to purchase science equipment.
“These donors understand how their generous investments in these laboratories will help our students reach their full potential, helping us build leaders to make a difference in our community,” said Sister of Mercy Delores Hannon, president.
The labs are designed for interactive experiments and collaboration as part of the all-girls school’s STEAM curriculum (science, technology, engineering, arts and math).
Upgrades include improved workspace islands; integrated projection systems; gas, water, electrical, lighting and ventilation improvements; and digital analysis enhancements.
