(Aurora, Ind.) – St. Mary’s School in Aurora is benefiting from a grant from the Dearborn Community Foundation.
Aurora mayor Donnie Hastings Jr. and city manager Guinevere Emery presented the $2,800 grant to the Catholic school. The two city officials helped the school in obtaining the DCF grant.
St. Mary’s principal Bob Brookbank says the money will purchase new science materials, including robotics equipment.
