The Brazosport College Foundation recently presented a $250 Visa Gift Card to Ben Madary, owner of Cycle Works in Clute, to be used toward repairing and maintaining bicycles donated to the College’s Bikes for Students program. The Bikes for Students program, which is being coordinated by BC faculty member Barry Foster, Madary, and the College’s Department of Student Life, provides free bicycles to BC students in need of transportation. The funds for the gift card were donated to the BC Foundation by a community member with a request to be used toward the Bikes for Students program. Pictured are, from left, Tracee Watts, Brazosport College Foundation Development Officer; Ben Madary, Cycle Works Owner; Serena Andrews, Brazosport College Vice President of College Advancement; Barry Foster, Bikes for Students program coordinator and BC faculty members; and Sherrie Garrett, Brazosport College Foundation Development Officer.
