Orange Coast College Receives a $1 Million Donation from Retired Professor Mary McChesney

Orange Coast College Planetarium

In the middle of working on the construction of a brand new planetarium located at Orange Coast College, the department received a $1 million donation. Mary McChesney, a retired Orange Coast College language professor, made the generous donation. The college plans to use her contribution for the funding of a Foucault pendulum. The pendulum is a useful tool in demonstrating the number of times that the Earth rotates.
