BROOKLYN -

Brooklyn Tech High School is celebrating its 95th anniversary this year.

The school is considered to be one of the nation’s largest, most prominent specialized high schools.

Over the years, students and graduates have had unique opportunities that they credit the school with providing them. Their many accomplishments include the graduates behind the creation of digital cameras, GPS satellites, mass production of penicillin and the discovery of the proof of the beginning of the universe.

The school will have its second annual gala next week and will be honoring the “Titans of Tech,” including Leonard Riggio, a graduate of 1958, Floyd Warkol, a graduate of 1965 and Londell McMmillan, a graduate of 1983.

The money raised will go toward the millions already raised by the foundation since 1983 to help fund the extensive labs and equipment used by the students at the school.
