BDPA HSCC Testimonial: Darryl Davis (Atlanta, 2008-2010)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation awarded over $347,000 in college scholarships since 1999. One of our scholars is Darryl Davis. Darryl earned a Jesse Bemley Scholarship as a result of the high performance by him and his BDPA Atlanta teammates during the 2008 National High School Computer Competition (HSCC) Championship.


Darryl shared his thoughts on BDPA with us in the following testimonial:

My experience with BDPA has been an emotionally, physically and mentally trying experience for each of the three years I was actively apart of the program. To this day I am amazed at how much I've changed since being a young, naive freshman to a mature high school graduate. I went into the program not knowing anything about programming, public speaking or teamwork, but each of those skills grew in me over the three years.
