BUCHANAN, April 15 (LINA) – The Grand Bassa County Association in the Americas has donated 100 computers and 10,000 assorted books to the Grand Bassa Community College (GBCC) in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.
The items were presented on Monday by the president of the association, Jerome Gilman, on the campus of the Community College.
Mr. Gilman said the items are intended to enhance the learning process at the college, and were donated by individuals and institutions in the United States of America.
Gilman named the donors as the St. Lucy County School, Lincoln Park Academy, Indian River State College, Font Lions for Kids, Clarke Publishing and Consulting Group and Ms. Miatta Stella Harris, among others.
Meanwhile, Gilman has disclosed that the association has purchased a bus in the United States for the college, but requested the college to pay its shipping cost to Liberia.
The Association has assured the Grand Bassa Community College of its continuous assistance, but said the college is required to pay 50 percent of shipping fees.
Receiving the items, GBCC president Dr. Levi Zangar thanked the donors for the items and promised the college’s collaboration with the association for the good of the institution.
