August 23, 2010

St. Maria Goretti High School in Hagerstown has been awarded a $42,307 grant from the Marion L. and Henry J. Knott Foundation.

The Knott Foundation is a Catholic family foundation that began in Baltimore in 1977. The Knotts began their philanthropic mission as a way to combine their two passions: family and their surrounding community, and the foundation continues that legacy today.

In recognition and support of their efforts, the Knott Foundation has awarded the grant to further enhance the technology advancements being made at the high school.

Through the generosity of the foundation, St. Maria Goretti High School has added four SMART Boards, 25 laptop computers for faculty and three ceiling-mounted LCD projectors, which will benefit every student at the school.

Angela Ruffner, director of educational technology, expressed her gratitude, appreciation and genuine excitement about the news.

"These teaching tools are a great addition to the recent upgrades we have made to the school's technological offerings," she said. "Now, technology will impact student learning in every classroom, and we will continue to grow and enhance these integrations."
