Flossmoor School District 161 (IL) announced a generous donation from alumnus Allan DiCastro to fund the district's first SmartLab. DiCastro's generous donation of up to $200,000 will fund a SmartLab at Serena Hills Elementary 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 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 so often.”
Now, after a successful twenty 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 Mr. DiCastro's commitment to educating young learners and are proud to partner with Flossmoor District 161.
