On Tuesday, December 9, 2020, Erik Lawton and Richard Flanagan, corrections officers with Green Haven Correctional Facility in Stormville met with Mrs. Merryman to present a check from their union. According to Officer Lawton, “These funds are allocated through the union budget, and in an effort to continually support Catholic students and schools, we submitted a proposal to secure this gift for OLL.” Officer Flanagan reiterated that sentiment commenting that, “It is so important that Catholic schools remain as an option for families. In this world where we are seeing so many schools closing, we aim to continue to do our part in ensuring their success.”

“We are humbled and appreciative to Officers Lawton and Flanagan for taking this special interest in Catholic education, ” commented Mrs. Merryman. “Their value in our mission is clear and we are truly grateful for their support.”
