Technology Expresso: Josie's FIT STEAM Relay Challenge

Josephine Reed has been an active volunteer with BDPA Atlanta chapter for a number of years. Currently, she serves as the director of the chapter's Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program. In that role she has provided guidance that resulted in over $10,000 of college scholarship funds being earned by BDPA Atlanta chapter students over the past few years.

Josie was the featured guest on Technology Expresso Cafe' podcast where she was interviewed by David Blackman and Jacqueline Sanders.

In her role as SITES directory, Josie attends all director meetings to discuss program curriculum and competition rules. As a board member, she work with the leadership team to develop and coordinate course objectives and program schedule with other instructors. She recruits instructors and students to participate in the program and works within the community to find sponsorship for the program.

Her passion to work with today's youth and exposing them to environments and experiences they otherwise may have never known, has been one of the best experiences in her life. As such, it is not a surprise to learn that Josie created an innovative idea that combines brain power and fitness for what promises to be an entertaining afternoon. The 'FIT STEAM Relay Challenge' is designed with the intention of engaging middle and high school students in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) education in an environment that promotes physical fitness. The students participating in the relay race will have many supporters cheering them on as they compete in front of their family, friends and peers.
