Toledo, OH - Mercy Health and Perrysburg Schools announced a new partnership that will:
  • Establish a scholarship through Perrysburg Schools Foundation for a senior student who plans to pursue a career in health science,Contribute to the construction of Huskisson Athletic Center and
  • Establish a STEM classroom grant through Perrysburg Schools Foundation
  • Establish annual funding for the performing arts in support of the Campaign for the Arts at Perrysburg Schools
Mercy Health is pleased to support a student pursuing a career in health science throughout the duration of this giving plan, and also to help fund projects that align with the organization’s core values of health, science and technology.

Perrysburg Schools is nearing completion of the Huskisson Athletic Center with an expected opening date later this month. This facility will provide much-needed locker, training, concession and community space at Widdel Field at Steinecker Stadium adjacent to Perrysburg Junior High. The project includes locker rooms for football, soccer and lacrosse. It also includes space available for a weight room/fitness center, coaches’ lockers and offices, training room, classrooms, home and visitors’ concessions and a media room.

Perrysburg Schools' STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program spans grades K through 12. The goal is to give students hands-on experience in applying concepts such as the design process and 21st Century Skills. An example of this would be students designing humane traps to catch an invasive species. Using communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, students in STEM are encouraged to learn multiple solutions to difficult problems. The school district aims to continue to strengthen STEM by increasing focus on computer science and coding.

“We are so grateful to Mercy Health for making this investment in our students, programs and classrooms,” stated Thomas L. Hosler, Superintendent. “Perrysburg Schools is proud to partner with Mercy Health, and we thankfully accept this gift, which will enable us to greatly enhance the opportunities we are able to offer our students.”
