At Holy Name Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School, we are pleased and proud to announce that the fundraising goal of one hundred and seventy-five thousand dollars to establish the Joseph Tham D. Pham Science Center has been reached and, in fact, exceeded. We are extremely grateful to everyone who was involved in this effort, and we feel blessed to turn our attention to organizing and planning the demo and renovation of this space to take place this summer so that we can offer our students a leading edge life sciences/biotech lab designed by Worcester Polytechnic Institute available in the fall of 2018.
We would like to thank the Crotty family and the O’Connor-Wilson family for their recent gifts which have put us past our goal. I would also like to thank Father Flynn and our Development Department, led by Scott Anderson and Wendy Yakstis, for all their hard work and dedication throughout this effort.
Two summers ago, we renovated our auditorium, installing new seating and incorporating the finest sound and light systems available. In summer 2017, we replaced our roofs and attended to a structural issue in the gymnasium. Summer 2018 will be dedicated to the Pham Science Center, and we are currently discussing the next improvement for our facility. At Holy Name, we continue to improve and to grow; it is a wonderful time in our school’s history as we celebrate the seventy-fifth year of our founding and the fiftieth year of our establishment on Granite Street!
