BDPA Washington DC Member of the Year * Louis Shack

Louis Shack, Technology Education Manager for DC Courts, combines his passion for computers with his passion to see youth reach their fullest potential. These passions have led him to volunteer with BDPA Washington DC chapter for the past five years. As a mentor, teacher and coordinator in the high school computer competition (HSCC) program, Louis has coached teams to achieve second and third place rankings in recent national BDPA HSCC championships (2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009).

Through his efforts and the efforts of his co-volunteers they have seen the program expand from a handful of interested applicants to thirty youths annually. For his selfless efforts and dedication to the chapter's mission, BDPA Washington DC chapter proudly presented this year's Chapter Member of the Year award to Mr. Louis Shack.
