Collectors Foundation Issues $5000 Grant to GLBBS

Collectors Foundation has just issued a very generous grant of $5,000 to GLBBS for the school's 2012-13 scholarship fund.  Our Board of Directors, staff, and particularly our students, extend our deep appreciation to the Foundation for its continued support over the years since the school's founding.  This funding will enable at least two exceptionally qualified students to attend GLBBS this coming year, who may not have been able to otherwise. 

Collectors Foundation is an educational grant-making organization funded by collector vehicle and classic boat enthusiasts to serve youth development and the long-term interests of the collector vehicle and classic boat communities.  More information about the Foundation can be found on its website:
