Bethel Bible Village To Expand Summer Program With $20,000 From AT&T

Thursday, December 5, 2019

The AT&T Foundation is contributing $20,000 to Bethel Bible Village, an organization focused on providing safe, nurturing and Christ-centered homes for children and families in crisis. This contribution will support Bethel Christian Academy high school students with college and career preparedness along with a summer bridge program for rising 9th graders to help with their transition to high school.

“We are grateful for this opportunity to expand our summer bridge program so that we may impact more youth throughout the region, ensuring students have the skills they need to enter Tennessee’s workforce,” said Rosalind Connor, CEO, Bethel Bible Village. “By easing the transition of our students to high school and then to post-secondary education and apprenticeships or internships in high demand fields, we increase their chances for success after high school.”

“Support for college and career readiness initiatives like those provided by Bethel Bible Village are a vital part of the equation to ensure students have every resource they need to succeed,” said State Senator Bo Watson. “Some of the brightest minds in the state walk the hallways of Bethel Christian Academy every day and I’m thrilled to see these worthy programs expanded.”

“AT&T is committed to East Tennessee and we are honored to support Bethel Bible Village and their initiative to bolster career readiness,” said Dennis Wagner, director external and legislative affairs, AT&T Tennessee. “Our company’s future, as well as the country’s, is dependent on today’s young people. Through the AT&T Foundation, we support programs that invest in students, especially those who need it the most, so they can walk across the graduation stage ready for their future.”
