Afternoon Briefing: Midlothian school celebrates 100 years — and a nun who’s been there for 50 of them

Good afternoon, Chicago.

Get ready to visit “the Griffin.” The Museum of Science and Industry on Sunday is officially becoming the Kenneth C. Griffin Museum of Science and Industry, a name change in recognition of a $125 million donation in 2019 from the founder and CEO of the Citadel hedge fund.

The donation was first reported when it and the name change were accepted by the museum’s board in October 2019. It’s the largest gift in the museum’s history, and one of the largest to a Chicago cultural institution.

Here’s what else is happening today. And remember, for the latest breaking news in Chicago, visit and sign up to get our alerts on all your devices.
