In June, park neighbor Guttman Community College decided to honor its graduating class by purchasing plaques on 25 student desks. The inscription, pictured below, reads: "Supporting student achievement in a thriving, sustainable New York City." The chairs themselves are a very sustainable gift, as we have an innovative program to preserve the chairs through careful maintenance, reducing chair waste.
|It is very fitting that the college chose to put plaques on student desks, which are used for our language classes and writing workshops.|
The college is located across 40th Street from the park, and has floor-to-ceiling windows in its first-floor student lounge that look onto the park. With the college's close proximity, it is certain that Bryant Park is an important part of a Guttman student's experience.
Members of the Class of 2015 and college president Scott Evenbeck posed with the chairs in the park. Like all chair plaque purchases, the student desks are guaranteed to be in the park for at least one year.

|Chair plaques are a great way to commemorate important anniversaries, lives well-lived, and appreciated students!|
