DOWNTOWN AKRON — The Henry & Laura Huth Charitable Foundation recently presented an initial pilot grant of $2,500 to St. Mary’s School. The grant will be used to support a new science lab for students in grades five through eight. Shown from left during the check presentation are Huth Foundation board member Renee Conlon, three eighth grade students, St. Mary’s School Principal Patricia Nugent and Foundation board member Jack Dowling.
“We will be exploring both virtual learning in natural science, in addition to traditional hands-on experiences,” said Nugent of the new lab. “A strong foundation in science is important for acceptance at area high schools and further success in upper grade levels.”
“Helping a deserving child build a strong foundation provides a benefit to society, as well as to the child,” added Conlon.
In 1989, Huth family members put into action a plan to perpetuate the ideals of their parents, Henry and Laura Huth, who supported children through education, and the Foundation was chartered in 2000 to focus on reversing the direction of at-risk children and youth.
