The Bahamas Technical Vocational Institute (BTVI) last week received a donation of tools and equipment from Coca Cola (Caribbean Bottling Co. Ltd).
Thousands of students have passed through BTVI’s doors over the past decade. The school has become an institution of choice for many high school graduates interested in a variety of trades.
“Today we stand with great honor as we salute Coca Cola, our long-standing partner, for their unwavering support,” said Dr. Iva Dahl, BTVI manager/consultant.
“This generous presentation solidifies Coca Cola’s commitment to our shared vision in creating training and opportunities for our students to be economically independent and globally competitive.”
Currently BTVI has 1,200 attendees at its New Providence campus and 300 at its Grand Bahama campus.
“We know first-hand the track record of BTVI and the great work they’re doing to create a strong workforce,” said Donnisha Armbrister, marketing manager at Caribbean Bottling.
“Being in the manufacturing business means we understand the need to have young Bahamians educated in a wide variety of technical fields. We’re proud to assist in their efforts.”
