Luncheon honors BCISD volunteers

BCISD photo
Bay City ISD volunteers, mentors, liaisons, campus representatives and administrators enjoyed an appreciation luncheon May 15, complete with door prizes, certificates of recognition, and thank-you gifts.

   Bay City ISD relies on the support of local volunteers and mentors.
   Through our Community Action Reaching Every Student (CARES) volunteer program and the Blackcat Mentors program, we are able to provide extra services to our students and staff.
   During the 2014-2015 school year, our volunteers contributed over 4,000 hours.
   It’s impossible to measure the full impact of our volunteers on our students’ and staff’s lives.
   However, if each hour is calculated at minimum wage, our volunteers donated have over $30,000 in labor.
