Lions award $5K grant to MHS teacher

The Merrimack Lions Club awarded Andrew Gagne, a science educator at Merrimack High School, the $1,000 Cheryl Pearsall High School Grant.

In his application, Gagne said he plans to buy "Atom Building Games that will provide the students with the ability to literally build an atom piece-by-piece." Students will develop collaboration skills and acquire content knowledge.

Gagne will be invited to a club meeting next fall to share his experiences with the new teaching aids.

For the last five years, the Merrimack Lions Club has offered this grant to all high school teachers who complete an application detailing their plans for the money and showing how the students will benefit.
