Giving students a comfortable location to study, relax with friends and refuel was a key component of the recently completed Lafferre Hall renovation project. Mizzou alumni Robert and Marcia Healy agreed, and their generosity helped make the new Potential Energy Cafe a reality.

The Healys, longtime supporters of Mizzou and the College of Engineering, were honored at the cafe’s grand opening in February. Robert Healy earned his bachelor’s degree and doctorate in chemical engineering from MU in 1964 and 1968, respectively. Marcia Healy — who also provided extensive design input for the cafe — graduated with a bachelor’s in Human Environmental Sciences in 1968.

“Potential Energy Cafe, much like the rest of the Lafferre Renovation project, wouldn’t be possible without private support like that of our honorees here today, Robert and Marcia Healy,” Dean Elizabeth Loboa said.
