Dart Container gives UABC $15,000 to finance international student exchanges, and also gives CETYS University $10,000

Dart Container Tijuana gave the Autonomous University of Baja California 190,500 pesos ($15,000) to finance three international student exchanges, Frontera reported Wednesday. Gerardo Flores Campbell, the CETYS-educated general manager of Dart Container Tijuana, said $10,000 is also going to CETYS University's Forgers of Education program. Michigan-based Dart Container makes foam cups and containers.
"With these actions Dart is returning a little of the lot it has received from the city of Tijuana and the state of Baja California," Flores Campbell said in an email.
