STEM Pipeline – The Foundation hosted a meeting of guidance counselors from 12 middle schools to discuss our STEM Pipeline Program, the application process, and the time commitment necessary on the part of the students and their families to participate in the program.

Recent Alumni Day – On Friday, January 8th the Foundation hosted the Third Annual Recent Alumni Day. Over 250 returning alums made their way back to Tech the day after the blizzard, in spite of multiple train delays and subfreezing temperatures. Speakers were paired with current students based on their high school majors. Each shared his or her story about the college application process and college life. Photos from this event are available on this page.

 

Alonzo Room Dedication – Room 5E14 was dedicated/named in honor of Martin V. Alonzo ’48. The family felt this was a fitting tribute to a man who credited Brooklyn Tech for giving him the foundation he needed to be successful in life. The family made a gift to the school to name the classroom after this beloved Technite. 


PROM DRESSES NEEDED! - We only have 20 dresses so far and we need many more! Clean out your closets for your old bridesmaids’ dresses, formals, cocktail party frocks and send to Tech for our young women who are seniors, headed for the senior prom in June. We need dresses that are in excellent condition; these may be gently used or brand new. Gently used dresses should be cleaned (tickets from the cleaners must remain on the dresses) before they are sent to us. Each dress must be appropriately packaged so that we do not have to follow up with pressing. We are accepting dresses of all sizes. Your name, graduating year and contact information should be included so that we can send you a receipt for tax purposes. If you choose to buy a dress for donating, please send the dress and a receipt so that we can include the value of the donation in the tax letter we send you.

Send to Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation, 29 Fort Greene Place, Brooklyn, New York 11217; Attention : E. Sciabarra

We will be hosting a late March, early April event so that Tech seniors getting ready for their prom, can “shop” in school first. Donations will be accepted through February 15, 2017. If a student finds a dress she likes, she will receive it free-of-charge.
