Westminster College science students will soon have a state-of -the-art lab, thanks to the largest donation in the school’s history.
The $10 million donation by John and Ginger Gore Giovale kick starts a fund-raising process for the 60,000-square-foot science center with a $30 million price tag.
"They understand that America is in grave danger of losing its preeminent position as the leading producer of scientific talent," Westminster President Michael Bassis said of the donors during the announcement Monday. "This gift helps to address that problem, for it is a long-term investment in a program with a wonderful track record of preparing the next generation of scientists."
