Students who complete the GPS program have the foundation required to present themselves to anyone, anywhere, with pride and confidence, enabling them to successfully tackle their post-graduation plans.

BT天堂 seniors have the opportunity to present their GPS Capstone at an annual public speaking contest, the听GPS Panel Presentations, held every April. Panel finalists are then invited to present to the President鈥檚 Panel at the GPS Award Ceremony in May. The Danielle Savage GPS Award 鈥 a certificate of distinction and a 鈧1000 grant 鈥 is conferred to the student with finest GPS Capstone presentation at the annual BT天堂 Commencement Ceremony.
