Leconte) and Mr. Thibault (Plumbing instructor), Mr. Gagliardi (School Principal), Mrs. Enos (Superintendent), Mr. Rob Gomes (Outside Construction Coordinator), Mr. Goncalves (Carpentry instructor) and several students who worked on the project at the Feast grounds.
Greater New Bedford Regional Voc-Tech was the recipient of a $10,000 donation from the Club Madeirense S.S. Sacramento and the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament, a non-profit organization founded in 1915, which will benefit the school's Outside Construction Program.
Students from GNB Voc-Tech helped upgrade some of the facilities on the feast grounds to better serve the many visitors in attendance each year. Building Committee Chairman and Past Feast President, David Macedo said, “I was impressed with the level of professionalism from these students and the quality of work performed.”
"This money will be put to good use and benefit our students! We are very thankful for the donation" said Michael Gagliardi, Principal for Career and Technical Education at GNB Voc-Tech on a phone interview with WBSM today. Yay, GNB Voc-Tech!
