On Saturday, April 8, Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School hosted our 10th annual "Get BART Smart" fundraiser – and raised $27,843 (net) for the school's college preparatory programs. Over 130 people attended – and re-lived their high school years through our team trivia game. A huge "thank you" to all who played and made it a great evening!

This night would not have been possible without the support of over a hundred local organizations and businesses.

Birge takes the oath of his office from Susan Gold, chairman of the board of trustees. See more photos here. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — James F. "Jamie" Birge hadn't intended to become a college president.    After interviewing dozens of presidents of colleges large and small, private and public, for his dissertation in leadership studies, he came away with the impression it was too difficult, too demanding and fraught with financial pressures.   "Why would anyone want to do that job?" he joked on Friday afternoon as he gave his inaugural address as the 12th president of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

Some of the workshops got the students more in touch with their artistic side, while others taught students about job-searching resources available in the community. PITTSFIELD, Mass, — The morning started with a "when I was your age" type story from children's author Ty Allan Jackson.   Jackson was speaking over the sound of the rain beating on the top of a large party tent. His audience: just about 120 high school students from across the county. When he was their age, the ghettos of New York City had broken education systems, there were issues of poverty and crime.
