Grant Disbursement: BDPA Charlotte ($6,150)

BDPA Charlotte chapter president Markus Beamer submitted a $6,500 funding request in accordance with the guidelines laid out by the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF).

Markus indicated that the funds would be used for the "BDPA Charlotte chapter high school computer competition (HSCC) program ... an information technology class made up of 22, 3-hour sessions in which 8th-to-12th grade students are taught how to build web applications. This program is connected to the National BDPA Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program. A majority of these funds are to be used to provide transportation and lodging for the national competition."

BETF approved the request in full.

A check for $6,150 is being processed for disbursement to the BDPA Charlotte chapter. Our hope is that the other 44 local BDPA chapters will contact BETF if they are interested in getting funding support! The plan works ... if only each chapter would work the plan!
