Eileen C. Dugan Life Sciences Center Unveiled
State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver headed a contingent of local politicians who came to St. Francis College on June 25 for the formal unveiling of the Eileen C. Dugan Life Sciences Center.
|City Councilman Steven Levin, Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein, Assemblyman Peter Abate, Jr., Assemblyman Joseph Lentol, former Assemblywoman Joan Millman, and Assemblywoman Jo Anne SImon with St. Francis College President Brendan J. Dugan ’68 and friends and family of Eileen Dugan.
Many of the lawmakers worked with former Assemblywoman Dugan and remembered her fondly for the hard work, dedication, and passion she poured into representing her Brooklyn constituents. The College is grateful to the elected officials who so generously set aside funding to help make the Center a reality.
The Eileen Dugan Center houses brand new science labs and provides a top-flight environment for the growing number of health, science and pre-med majors at the College as well as community programs like the free Summer Science Academy for high school students.
