Contractor makes donation to BTVI

Well-known contractor Larry Treco and his wife, Paula, recently donated an Apple iMac desktop computer to the Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI).

Mr Treco learned of BTVI's computer needs from its president and fellow Rotarian, Dr Robert W Robertson. Knowing this, the owner of CGT Contractors and Developers - who has employed several BTVI students in the past - and his wife decided to make a personal donation.

Alicia Thompson, BTVI's associate vice-president of fund development, said: "BTVI is certainly fortunate to have the support of Mr and Mrs Treco, who have over 30 years' experience in the construction industry. As we endeavour to develop many more public-private partnerships, we encourage others whose lives have been touched by BTVI to give back.

"We have many needs, and we are anxious to find persons who can help us to meet those needs. We are on a mission to propel technical and vocational education and training to the prominence that it rightfully deserves."
