Human Capital Logistics Scholarship for Brandi Taylor Used at Claflin University

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) is proud to administer the Human Capital Logistics (HCL) Scholarship for BDPA Students. BDPA Greater Columbia student member Brandi Taylor won the scholarship and plans to use it to continue her studies at Claflin University. The HCL Scholarship recognizes outstanding BDPA Greater Columbia student members, with an interest in information technology, who make significant contributions to society. Applicants must excel academically, show exceptional leadership potential, and make an impact on their communities through service to others. Applicants must be financially current members of the BDPA Greater Columbia chapter.

HCL Scholar * Brandi Taylor
Brandi is a senior Biology major at Claflin University and will graduate with honors in May 2018. We asked her to share her thoughts on BDPA:

One of the most memorable moments while participating in BDPA was competing in the BDPA IT Showcase. The IT Showcase provided me with foundations for conducting research and communicating my findings with others. I utilized the skills that BDPA taught me to conduct and present research in the Scientific community. My goal is to attend Podiatry school to pursue a doctoral degree in podiatry. Within the next 20 years, I want to open my own franchise of clinics that assist in the expansion of podiatry health care to underprivileged families across the world. In addition, she wants to open free health clinics that promote healthy lifestyles for the African American community."

HCL is owned and operated by BDPA member Phyllis Coleman. Phyllis is a long-time supporter of BDPA ... including her service as past president of BDPA Greater Columbia chapter. It is wonderful to see BDPA entrepreneurs and small business owners reaching back to 'make a difference' with our young people.

We hope that other BDPA business owners will find a way to support our young people with either scholarships or sponsored memberships. Contact BETF executive director if you have questions or wish to discuss further.
