On December 2, Great Lakes Higher Education, a national non-profit loan servicer, presented a check to Moreland Arts and Health Science Magnet School for $6,730. Every year, the Great Lakes Eagan office raises money through a drive for the United Way. This past year, employees raised $6,730 for the United Way to help the community.
Each year, Great Lakes matches the amount of money raised for the United Way and gives it to a local school. For the third year in a row, Moreland was chosen to receive this gift as part of Great Lakes’ Adopted School Partnership.
Carrie Hansen, senior sales and marketing strategist for Great Lakes, presented the check to Principal Mark Quinn.
“We are going to use the money that Great Lakes raised to help students in reading and science projects,” said Quinn.
The money will also be put toward building a “Maker Space” in the Moreland library with new moveable furniture and tables.
Great Lakes continues to partner with Moreland with the goal of helping students become career and college ready.
