Mt. Olive Manufacturing Supported Link Observatory Space Science Institute STEM Program
July 2015 – Mt. Olive Manufacturing owners, Steve and Lisa Langley today announced their support for the Link Observatory Space Science Institute STEM program. An initial donation of $10,000, establishing a fund to be administered through the Community Foundation of Morgan County, has been made by the Langley’s local business. Mt. Olive employees and their families enjoyed a private event at the Link Observatory on Thursday evening (July 9, 2015) to hear more about the STEM program that will be directed toward middle school children attending Morgan County schools in the coming years.
Greg McCauley, Executive Director of the Link Observatory Space Science Institute, commented that “we are very pleased to partner with the Langley’s and Mt. Olive Manufacturing in helping to establish this program in Morgan County. Creating this fund through the Community Foundation of Morgan will provide an on-going means for others that may have an interest in donating to help advance the education of Space Science in our local school systems.”
The Link Observatory Space Science Institute, located on a hilltop 4 ½ miles south of Mooresville, exists to foster scientific discovery, stimulate an interest in astronomy and cultivate the next generation of science, technology and academic leaders. Completed in 1939, the observatory was built for the private use of Dr. Goethe Link, a noted Indianapolis surgeon. From the 1950s through the mid-1980s it was used by Indiana University for important astronomical research. Now, however, this magnificent astronomical observatory is dedicated to providing informal, yet expertly designed, science education to schools and the general public throughout Morgan County. Its mission is to inspire students to pursue studies in math, engineering, technology and science (STEM) and encourage students in all disciplines to explore and achieve their greatest potential.
