UNE to rename Marine Science Center

The University of New England will honor Arthur Girard at 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15 at the University of New England Marine Science Center, 11 Hills Beach Road, Biddeford.

Last year, Girard and his family showed their appreciation for the work being done in UNE’s Marine Sciences Department by donating Ram Island in Saco Bay to the university, making UNE one of the few universities with its own island. Girard recently announced another monetary donation, one of the largest in UNE’s history, an amount the donor wants to keep anonymous. To show its appreciation, UNE will rename the Marine Science Center the Arthur P. Girard Marine Science Center.
