TGI Supports Palm Beach State College’s STEAM Initiative
Posted May 2016
The Palm Beach State College Foundation raised $90,000 at the annual Golf Classic for the College’s STEAM initiative. TGI was proud to sponsor such an exceptional event.
The funds will go toward STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) student scholarships and program enhancements to impact the projected shortage of local, skilled professionals in these fields.
Twenty-seven golf foursomes played in the tournament held on April 29 at Ballen Isles Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens.
At the reception, PBSC student Christopher Ferguson told the crowd of more than 100 how a scholarship helped him achieve his educational goals and expressed appreciation to donors.
“Thanks to our donors, we the students, can enjoy the same college experience without stressing to pay for our classes, books, or any other required college-related fees,” said Ferguson. “College is rigorous, so we really appreciate our donors for recognizing our grit and rewarding us for devoting time to student clubs, organizations and volunteer opportunities while excelling academically. Without donors, many of our future leaders of tomorrow, would not be able to register for essential classes needed to pursue their degrees.”
Ferguson, a construction management major, will graduate from Palm Beach State Monday and will attend the University of Florida in the fall.
