Grant Award: Best Buy Children's Foundation ($2,000)

Best Buy Children's Foundation approved a $2,000 Tag Team Award for programs and services in our BDPA Dayton chapter. The funds are direct result of volunteer efforts by BDPA member Robert Blair.

The funds will allow participation by Dayton-area students in the Student Information Technology & Scholarships (SITES) program. The program includes the Midwest Regional High School Computer Competition (HSCC), Youth Technology Camp and the national BDPA HSCC in Atlanta, GA on August 8-9, 2008.

It is worth noting that Charles Crawford IV (HSCC Alumni, Class of 1999-2001) led this funding effort based on discussions he had with executives at Best Buy. I had pleasure of sitting next to Charles at the 20th annual BDPA Dayton chapter SITES Banquet earlier this month. He is truly a special brother and a marvelous example for all of our HSCC alumni around the country.
