Brooklyn Summer H.E.A.T. Reflections

Today’s post is written by Evan Threadgill, who worked at BHS this summer through the Borough President’s Office program, Brooklyn Summer H.E.A.T. Evan is entering his junior year at East NY High School of Transit Technology.  BHS is proud to participate in this program and gives tremendous thanks to Evan for all his hard work!
