Tech Trek Receives a Foundation Grant
Special thanks to the Bardis Foundation, created by Christo Bardis of Reynen and Bardis, homebuilders in the greater Sacramento area for over 40 years. Katherine Bardis, administrator of the foundation and the daughter of Christo Bardis, presented to the Branch’s Tech Trek program a Foundation Grant for $900. Katherine joined the building industry in 2012 by creating Bardis Homes with her cousin Rachel Bardis. At the same time, she completed her Juris Doctor degree at McGeorge School of Law. Katherine and Rachel are role models for young girls in the STEM fields. They have applied their education and knowledge of STEM concepts to design homes and communities for families in the Sacramento area. The Branch is grateful to the Bardis Foundation for the support of young girls in the Tech Trek Program. You can read more about them here.
