Easthampton, MA – MassDevelopment has issued a $4 million tax-exempt bond on behalf of the Williston Northampton School, an independent boarding and day school in Easthampton for grades 7- 12, which will use proceeds to fund upgrades to several buildings and facilities on its campus.

Improvements to the campus, which was founded in 1841, include renovating academic buildings, dormitories, the chapel, the head of school’s residence, and outdoor tennis facilities; installing new heating systems, windows, and card access systems; buying equipment and technology; and repaving the athletic center parking lot. People’s United Bank purchased the bond.

“Working with MassDevelopment and Peoples United Bank has allowed Williston to significantly improve the school’s facilities to advance the school’s program and enhance the student experience,” said Williston Chief Financial Officer Chuck McCullagh. “Also, these important improvements help us to continue to provide a great environment for our 227 full-time and part-time employees.”
