BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) is very proud to announce that Raytheon has awarded a $6,000 cybergrant in support of the BDPA programs and services in the greater Los Angeles area. This award is a direct result of the efforts by BDPA Los Angeles chapter president John Malonson. Here is the award letter that came with the check:
