VoiceAmerica's 'What Matters' Radio Show Features BETF Executive Director Wayne Hicks

This blog is part of a web of social network platforms created by the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) to spread the gospel of BDPA. We seek to increase brand awareness so that more people get active with BDPA programs and services around the nation.

I guess it's workingCertified life coach Mary Beth Lodge saw the persistent information being shared by BETF and determined that we would be worthy of having as a guest on her VoiceAmerica Internet radio show, 'What Matters' in an episode title, Goals: Inspiration and Focus.   The is broadcast live on Wednesday, January 25 @ 9:00 AM ET ... re-broadcast again at 9:00 PM ET ... then available for *free* download via iTunes.

The promo for the show reads:
Discouraged about the impact you can have? Ever think that one person doesn’t have much influence? One person, focused and passionate, can make a tremendous difference! This week we are joined by R. Wayne Hicks, executive director of the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation. BDPA was founded in 1975 out of concern that minorities were not adequately represented in the workforce of the then emerging computer industry. BETF, the Education and Technology Foundation of BDPA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity established in 1992 to financially support student education and technology initiatives.
Wayne Hicks
An active leader in the organization since 1988, Wayne has followed his passion for education and applied his skill and dedication to expanding opportunities for disadvantaged youth across the country. Working at both the local and national level, Wayne is the embodiment of the ripple effect. Listen in and gain an inspiration for your own passion and purpose.
I suspect that the discussion will focus on the work that we're doing to raise funds for BDPA ... with an emphasis on our mission of education. I will explain to the listening audience the great works being done under the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program umbrella. I will also talk about the great young people that BETF has been providing college scholarships over the recent years.

I found this video on Mary Beth's website and thought that you would enjoy it as well!

Anyhow, I hope that some of y'all find time to listen to the show live on Wednesday morning!
