Merom CC Receives Donation For Repairs

The Merom Conference Center received $30,000 donation for repairs to College Hall. The donation was given in response to the need for tuck pointing repairs to part of College Hall. These repairs will take care of the southeast corner of the building where some bricks have come loose and have dropped. The area has been fenced off for the past year. We are excited to have this project checked off our “wish list!” Check out the news story here.
