Benjamin N. Cardozo High School in Bayside opened a new state-of-the-art technology center last week with support from the Queens-based Subraj Foundation.
The Subraj Foundation Director Tony Subraj donated $35,000 to enable Cardozo to purchase 35 new desktop computers, a Promethean board, smart pens and other tools. The foundation will donate another $10,000 for the school to purchase 45 iPads.
Cardozo Principal Megan Colby and several students joined State Senators Toby Stavisky and John Liu, Assemblymembers David Weprin and Ed Braunstein and Councilmember Barry Grodenchik at the grand opening.
“Benjamin N. Cardozo High School is a beacon of excellence and attracts thousands of students each year,” Stavisky said. “I want to thank the Subraj Foundation for allocating funds for a new technology center so that the students can benefit from new technology and techniques they would otherwise be difficult to access. I know the new technology center will be put to good use.”
The Subraj Foundation was created by the late George Subraj, a Guyanese immigrant who founded Zara Realty in 1982.
“This new lab will provide our students with the most up to date technology and prepare them to compete in our ever-advancing society,” Braunstein said.
