President Profile: Toni Love (BDPA St. Louis)

BDPA St. Louis chapter was founded in January 1989. It is a chapter for which we have very little documented history. One thing we do know is that the chapter has done very well over the past few years under the leadership of its current president -- Toni Love.

Toni has been a BDPA member for over 20 years. She served as president of the BDPA St. Louis chapter since 2009. Under her leadership the chapter has been very active with program meetings, youth education programs and annual banquets to honor its members, students and volunteers. Toni works closely with the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) to raise scholarship funds for the student members in her chapter.

BDPA Legacy: Wesley Williams (BDPA Atlanta)

BDPA created the High School Computer Competition (HSCC) over 25 years ago. There have been thousands of students taking part in regional and national championships since that time. There have been hundreds of HSCC coordinators and volunteer instructors. However, there may be only one person who has participated in the HSCC for as long or as well as its founder, Dr. Jesse Bemley. That person is Wesley Williams.

Wesley Williams has been a proud member of the BDPA organization since 2001. His membership originated with the Memphis chapter, as a student in the HSCC program. He worked his way up through the rank to become a member of the Memphis HSCC team. In fact, Wesley was part of the first-ever HSCC championship won by BDPA Memphis chapter.

Grant Recipient: BDPA Los Angeles ($5,141)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) works hard to raise money to support BDPA programs and services around the nation. One of the local chapters that works hand-in-glove with BETF over the past few years has been BDPA Los Angeles. This year is no exception.

That is why it feels good to announce that BETF approved a $5,141 funding request from BDPA Los Angeles chapter president John Malonson and chapter VP-Finance David Malonson. The Malonson brothers indicate that the funding will be used to provide airfare, lodging and registration for the chapter's national high school computer competition (HSCC) team.

Hustle Hard

by Milt Haynes

If you are unemployed or underemployed, this post is for you.

I was laid off from my job on in mid-January of this year and I’m still looking. It’s been 6 months but I’m not worried. I’m willing to put in the extra time and effort to find my ideal job. Are you in a dead end job? Are you unemployed and worried about finding your next job? Is your money running short? Check out ourIT Job Seekers forum (http://blacksgonegeek.org/JobSeekerFocusGroup.aspx). Help is only a click away!
