Earl Wilkerson Named 'Outstanding Volunteer of the Year' by Media General

BDPA member Earl Wilkerson has been named 2010 Outstanding Volunteer for Media General’s Richmond headquarters. The award was established to reward the employee who contributed the most time to company-sponsored events in 2010. Earl is shown in this photo accepting his award from Media General's CEO Marshall Morton.

Earl consistently and enthusiastically participated in the volunteer projects conducted last year and his dedication to volunteering led him to be nominated for the Richmond headquarters Employee Involvement Team.
It is easy to understand why Earl has so many friends at MG. Just talk to him for a few moments and you’ll realize he genuinely cares about people and his community,” said Rich Husick, intranet web manager.
Earl was presented with a certificate and a gift card to The Boathouse restaurant. In addition, the company will make a $500 donation to the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF).

In addition to being a valued member of the Media General information technology department ... Earl is also a valued member of BDPA Richmond chapter. Earl was the lead instructor last year for the team of students trained by BDPA Richmond chapter to compete in the National BDPA High School Computer Competition (HSCC) championships held in Philadelphia PA.

BETF joins with all of BDPA-nation to congratulate Earl on this wonderful recognition!

And we encourage you to demonstrate your appreciation for his volunteer efforts by making a donation to the BDPA Richmond HSCC Scholarship Fund!
