Holy Family High School in Victoria received a $100,000  endowment from Strom Engineering in Minnetonka that it will use to help its science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) program.

Announced Nov. 15, the endowment will be called the Strom Engineering Endowment for Technology. The donation was also made by Strom CEO emeritus John and Martha Radick.

“We are grateful to Strom Engineering for the company’s support of Holy Family over the years and this endowment in particular,” said Kathleen Brown, Holy Family principal, in a statement. “Our robotics club, Pyrobotics, has won multiple awards for innovation of design and presentation at regional and national competitions. This endowment will ensure that they have every opportunity available to compete at the highest levels.”

Previous Strom Engineering donations to Holy Family have facilitated the school’s purchase of digital whiteboards as well as the funding of financial need-based scholarships.

The Radicks sent their four children to Holy Family, and John is a board member emeritus of the school.

“We feel strongly about participating in the community and donating to nonprofits that represent the values of Strom Engineering. Our corporate dedication to innovation and technology reflects Holy Family’s development of students to succeed in their professional careers,” Radick said in a Nov. 15 statement.

“The school’s combination of faith and values with academic rigor has launched alumni who are leaders in their fields,” he added. “We are excited to see how this endowment builds the school’s technology program to prepare students for success.”
