HCC receives a $2,500 donation from the Hagerstown Lions Club

(September 3, 2019) – Hagerstown Community College recently received a $2,500 donation from the Hagerstown Lions Club to be used for programmatic funding for the 2019 STEM Festival. The event will be held on Saturday, October 12, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., on HCC’s main campus.

“Our club has a major focus on youth education. Helping sponsor the STEM Festival is a natural fit for us.” said Brooks McBurney, service project chairman of Hagerstown Lions Club. “This is a great opportunity for the Club to give back to the community by helping present STEM topics in fun and creative ways.”

The 2019 STEM Festival will include science exhibits, hands-on activities, and competitions for students in K-12. The free festival is one of many STEM focused events taking place throughout the state during the 2019 Maryland STEM Festival, a month-long celebration held from October 11 to November 10.
