RACINE — Racine Lutheran High School dedicated its renovated science lab during a donor-appreciation reception.
Don Punswick, vice president of the Violet and Harold Jaeke Foundation’s board of directors, feels the renovation of the science lab will enhance the level of education for students at Racine Lutheran High School. He reports, “The Jaekes firmly believe that with a good, sound education, the future is unlimited. Having the right tools and dedicated teachers makes this possible.”
The renovation includes more than $150,000 in improvements. The lab provides students with expansive, flexible space for creating innovative projects and enhanced work areas to complement the scientific, engineering and technological college- and career-readiness initiatives, plus improved safety features such as air exchange and fume hoods.
Significant grants were received from SC Johnson, the Violet and Harold Jaeke Foundation Inc., the John Bleeke Memorial, LCMS Foundation, the Lang Family Foundation and the Siebert Lutheran Foundation, and contributions from other generous donors.
