Lynwood Unified Celebrates Groundbreaking of New STEM Lab

Representatives of Lynwood Unified School District’s Board of Education, Superintendent Gudiel R. Crosthwaite, and the offices of elected officials gathered on Sept. 2 to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new state-of-the-art STEM lab at Firebaugh High School.
Firebaugh High School students and key leaders grabbed their hard hats and shovels to commemorate the new facility, made possible by a grant of $225,000 from the W. M. Keck Foundation, which will inspire young learners to pursue success in the District’s College and Career Technical Education (CTE) Pathway program.
The lab will allow Firebaugh to double enrollment in its biomedical science and nursing program, along with its advanced manufacturing and engineering program. Those programs currently share a space that limits activities and projects.
