Serena Hills Elementary Announces SmartLab Donation
Flossmoor School District 161 in Illinois recently announced a generous donation from alumnus Allan DiCastro to fund the district’s first SmartLab HQ.
DiCastro’s generous donation of up to $200,000 will fund a SmartLab HQ at Serena Hills Elementary School where he was a student in the early 1970’s.
DiCastro remembers his time at Serena Hills fondly. “Experiences in that school made me feel like I could achieve what anyone else could,” DiCastro told the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle. “And then as I went out into the world that sense of worth stuck and grounded me.”
Now, after a successful 20-year career in finance, his generosity will provide his alma mater with STEAM resources so that other students can benefit from similar inspiration.
We appreciate his commitment to educating young learners and are proud to partner with Flossmoor District 161.
