Aside from recognizing area businesses and educators, the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council on Thursday awarded scholarships and grants to support science, technology education and student entrepreneurship at its 21st annual awards gala.

“We want to make sure that everyone knows about the best of the best of what’s happening and encourage more companies to aspire to do and attain the things that these companies are doing,” CBIC Executive Director Tracey Greene told attendees of the gala, held at the Paramount Theater.

The CBIC has gifted more than $42,000 in grants to recipients of the Educator of the Year award to further the use of technology in classrooms since 2003. This year’s winner, Albemarle High School teacher Chris Bunin, received a $2,500 technology in education grant.
