Donors provide $250,000 for new chemistry laboratory
Nov 14, 2007

Olivet College has received a $250,000 donation from Bob “Berry” and Sarah Lawrence, of Grosse Ile, to finance the renovation of a chemistry laboratory. The facility, which is titled the “Dr. Paul H. and Ruth B. Engle Chemistry Laboratory” after Sarah’s parents, will include new furniture, flooring, gas burners, hoods and instruments. Construction began in July and will be completed next semester.

Dr. Paul H. Engle practiced medicine in Olivet for more than 30 years and was the college doctor. “Donating the money to improve the chemistry lab was fitting for us,” Sarah said. “My parents were both very active in college affairs, my husband was a chemistry major and I was a chemistry minor, so we couldn’t think of a better way to use the money.”

Bob and Sarah Lawrence graduated from Olivet in 1957 and 1956, respectively.
