OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Students, faculty and staff at the McDonogh School in Owings Mills gathered Wednesday to celebrate the opening of The Naylor Building for Upper School science, technology engineering, and math (STEM).
S tudents and guests wore lapel pins with an image of Irvin S. Naylor , a successful businessman and graduate of the Class of 1954, whose lead gift made possible the construction of the state-of-the-art facilities. The ceremony included speeches from senior class president Will Cosgarea , Headmaster Charlie Britton, and Irv Naylor , after which members of the Naylor family cut a ribbon at the entrance of the new building.
The Naylor Building includes customized labs and classrooms, a Foucault pendulum, a climate-controlled green house, and spaces that will give students access to expanded computer science, robotics, and engineering programs.
The Naylor Building is part of McDonogh's campus master plan (CMP), which also includes the construction of The Edward St. John Student Center, scheduled to open in January or February of 2014. This building, named for preeminent Baltimore real estate developer Edward A. St. John, will include dining spaces for students, visual and performing arts facilities, a 175-seat lyceum, an infirmary, meeting rooms, and a snack bar.
Completion of the Rosenberg Campus Green-the centerpiece of the CMP-will follow in the spring of 2014.
