Lock Haven Catholic School receives shade structure grant
Lock Haven Catholic School PTO has been awarded a Shade Structure Grant from the American Academy of Dermatology. The grant has provided a permanent shade structure awning that will protect 250 children each day from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Since its launch in 2000, the AAD’s Shade Structure Grant Program has awarded funding for more than 400 shade structures, which provide shade for more than 3 million individuals each day. Geisinger dermatologist Dr. Lorraine Rosamilia, a member of the AAD, sponsored LHCS PTO’s grant application. As a LHCS graduate with two nephews attending the school, Dr. Rosamilia had a personal interest in obtaining this grant. 104 different organizations across the country applied for this grant and 32 got awarded, including three in Pennsylvania, one being Lock Haven Catholic.
