Sheetz Founder donates $1 Million to Lynn University for Final Presidential Debate 10/22/12

With its big national moment nine months away, Lynn University is planning to spruce up its main entrance on Military Trail — and add a second entrance on Potomac Road. The price tag is about $2 million, $1 million each pledged by two donors.

Lynn will be the site of the final presidential debate of the 2012 campaign Oct. 22.

The renovation of the main entrance on Military Trail will include a new traffic signal and an increase of its entrance road to five lanes.

The entrance updates are to be paid for by a $1 million pledge from Boca Raton's Robert Sheetz, the retired founder of Sheetz Corp., a fast-food and fuel business in the Northeast.

At Potomac Road on the south side of the campus, a new entrance will be added, as well as a back perimeter road.

An existing nature preserve will be relocated to the western edge of the campus.

The preserve will be named for Benjamin Olewine, of Harrisburg, Pa., and Boca Raton who pledged $1 million to create the new entrance.
