Hannibal, MO - On Friday, August 3, Nicki McGlone-Santistevan, site manager for BASF, presented checks totaling $3500 to Connie Benson, HLG vice president for Institutional Advancement. This donation will be put towards the new science building as a part of the Building for the Future Capital Campaign.

“Once again BASF has shown their willingness to be a community partner," said Dr. Woodrow Burt, HLG president. "This gift will be used to enhance what we offer our students and, in turn, what we provide to the community.  We are very grateful to BASF for their continued support.”
