Let There Be Light

 

皇冠hg0088备用网址A campus wide project to illuminate our facilities to create a safer, protected environment for our students, faculty, staff and visitors. Poles topped with luminares light the entire drive from Green Street to the Fr. Edwin Watson, OSB Administration Building, to the gymnasium and along the dormitory walkways. Each pole has banner arms, a flag insert, and space for a donor plaque.

Banners on the light poles showcase photos that represent the ten Benedictine Values that support what we do each day:  Jesus Christ, Community, Conversion of Life, Love of Learning, Listening, Excellence through Virtue, Hospitality, Stability, Stewardship and Prayer and Work. In addition to displaying banners of the Benedictine Values drawn from St. Benedict, the light poles feature international flags from each of the countries of present students.

皇冠hg0088备用网址Although nearly all poles have been installed, there is still an opportunity for you to have a pole named in your honor. A $5,000 pledge or gift will purchase a decorative pole, electricity for lighting and a donor plaque.

A project of updating the 47-year-old science lab area and converting it into a “State of the Art” Science Lab was completed in November 2008.  This project concentrated on the science wing located in the Fr. Edwin Watson O.S.B. Academic Building. Two classrooms were refurbished, along with the hall, and a new general science classroom was added to make a total of four classroom areas completed. An anonymous donor committed a gift to the science wing renovation of $150,000 that started off this important campaign. This gift was in the form of a challenge gift. Scott ‘88 & Kim Penning presented another challenge gift to MH-MA and contributed $100,000 towards this project. Over $500,000 was raised for the science wing renovation project!!
