Our Featured Video: BT Students on CBS News

Take a peek at the Featured Video on BT's homepage. On the Road with Steve Hartman, a nationally broadcast show on CBS aired a special segment for Martin Luther King weekend featuring our 2016-17 Bear Tavern Students! The show chronicled how our students surprised our friends, Reverend and Mrs. Caldwell, for their 60th Wedding Anniversary. Students wrote letters to the Mt. Airy Casino and Resort and provided the Caldwell's with a 'redo' of their Honeymoon. It is very exciting for all of us and we could not be more proud of our students.
