"Yes, we did receive the computers. We are using them for our High School Computer Competition (HSCC) students. Right now we have borrowed software for the operating systems from Monsanto. We hope to get donation of software licenses from Microsoft to donate us the software," said BDPA St. Louis chapter president Toni Love.
The mission of Discovering Your Potential is to serve as a resource for educators and parents who seek to improve academic skills for at risk children by offering an after school program focused on math and reading.

This is great news for BDPA St. Louis chapter. The chapter is also working hard to raise college scholarship funding for their HSCC students.
