DONATION RECEIVED FOR BGS TECHNOLOGY FROM 
TRI - STATE CHEVY!

As part of Chevrolet's #DayItForward campaign, the company teamed up with several celebrities to use the extra day granted by 2016's leap year to participate in community service. The Tri-State Chevy Dealership extended this sentiment into year-end, providing a gift of $7,500 to BGS for new technology. This investment will be used to equip BGS students with the technology needed to cultivate skills in STEM-related areas, bolstering these students' chances of entering high growth, technical fields post-graduation.
