Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) is one of just 39 colleges and universities across the country to receive a U.S. Department of Education Title III grant under the Strengthening Institutions Program. The $2,232,943 grant over five years will enhance a major initiative at the College that employs both technology and personal attention to promote student success in educational, career and life goals. Just one other institution of higher education in Massachusetts was among the recipients.
Volunteers from across the region joined students, faculty and staff at Bunker Hill Community College on Saturday, October 19 to plant 13 new trees on the Charlestown campus grounds. The Odwalla company and The Nature Conservancy sponsored the planting, which is part of a larger commitment to plant a total of 130,000 trees during 2013 in forests and urban areas nationwide. The Boston Natural Areas Network also took part in the event.
