Bryan Innovation Lab Receives $250,000 Grant from Reynolds Foundation

The Steward School announces the receipt of a $250,000 grant from the Richard S. Reynolds Foundation.

This generous gift is being recognized by naming the Bryan Lab’s dry and wet studios the Reynolds Family Studios.

The Reynolds Foundation was created by Julia Louise Reynolds to honor her husband, the founder of Reynolds Metals Company. Mr. Reynolds was recognized as an industry leader in mining, manufacturing, and applied technology and aluminum products, including the invention of Reynolds aluminum foil, better known as Reynolds Wrap, the aluminum beverage can, aircraft and automotive components, and building and construction materials.

The Reynolds family is actively engaged in the Steward community. Adam Caperton Reynolds is a first grader, and his mother, Clay Caperton Reynolds, served as co-chair of the 2013 and 2014 Gala events and is vice president of the Parents Association. Following the dedication ceremony, the first-grade class participated in a hands-on learning activity in the newly named labs with Visiting Innovator Doug Tallamy, an entomologist from the University of Delaware who is a specialist in biodiversity.
