Robert Bosch Tool Corporation has donated $20,000 through the Gaston College Foundation to help build a Science and Technology Center on the Lincoln Campus of Gaston College.
That contribution brings the school very close to its goal of $1.9 million. Contributions now total approximately $1.6 million.
Rosalind Welder, dean of the Lincolnton Campus, said Bosch is known for its generosity to worthwhile projects in Lincoln County.
â€œWe are extremely grateful for all of their help,â€ she said.
The corporation is a division of Robert Bosch GmbH, based in Stuttgart, Germany, and is a leading tool manufacturer in North America. Formerly known as Vermont American Corporation, the Lincolnton Facilities have been part of the community since 1960.
â€œOur company believes in supporting education,â€ said Juergen Buch, Vice President of Manufacturing for the Lincolnton operation. â€œWe need good workers and we look to schools like Gaston College to help prepare them. Our company is glad to help the college build more science and computer labs.â€
