The St. Mary’s building project took a step forward Nov. 29 when a sign for a new Gateway and STEM building was unveiled in front of the Tony Conigliaro Gymnasium entrance on Tremont Street. St. Mary’s faculty, staff and students were joined by trustees, members of the campaign committee and community business partners for the event.
The ceremony marks a pivotal time in the school’s history, as more than $14 million has been raised to build a state-of-the-art learning center in the heart of Lynn.
“We are moving beyond our goal to meet the needs of additional students, to improve our programs, and to develop a 3-story Gateway building that will add new classroom and laboratory space,” said St. Mary’s Board Chair William Mosakowski, who has spearheaded the Building Futures campaign along with campaign chair Glenn Morris.
The impact of the campaign will be shared by St. Mary’s students and the Lynn community. The new Gateway and STEM building will provide an impressive entrance to the St. Mary’s campus, and will include innovative learning spaces, STEM programming and technologically advanced classrooms. Funds raised during the campaign will address scholarship support for students, as well as academic and extracurricular programming.
“Today we take a moment to reflect and reverence the 135th anniversary of St. Mary’s. While we celebrate this storied history on this city block, we embark on exciting plans for the future with our Building Futures campaign,” said Head of School Grace Cotter Regan.
St. Mary’s expects to break ground for the building this spring. For more information about the campaign please contact Jen Pearce at [email protected] or 781-586-2067.
