Merced College gifted $1 million to build new plaza for students

MERCED, Calif. (KFSN) -- Merced College will soon have a new area for students to hang out on campus, thanks to a donation from a North Valley family.

Four brothers are gifting $1 million to the school to help build a new plaza.

It will be called the Hermione Isakow plaza in loving memory of their late mother.

She died last year from Amyloid Disease.

The brothers say their mom instilled into them a deep appreciation for education, discipline and family.

The Merced College Board of Trustees approved the project at Tuesday's meeting. Construction will begin soon.
