Anonymous donor gifts Lumen Christi Science Department $20,000

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Lumen Christi High School has been named the recipient of a $20,000 biotechnology grant to its Science Department. The award comes from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous. It was revealed LCHS is the only Alaska institution to be named, all other awardees are located in Southern California.

LCHS has put science at the forefront of its curriculum since its inception 25 years ago. The grant will give teachers and staff an opportunity to take this focus to the next level.

“One of the attributes of a Lumen graduate is that they can think critically and solve problems; thanks to this grant award, Lumen students now have the opportunity to examine current issues in conjunction with lab experiences using the most up-to-date biotech equipment and materials. This means Lumen students are poised to become the next generation of problem solvers incorporating ethical perspectives,” says Math and Science Department Chair Debbie Brewer.

Lumen Christi Principal Brian Ross says, “We are both humbled and proud to have been selected for this generous award. We know our students will benefit with authentic experiences that will prepare them for careers of the future.”
