Dr. Jesse Bemley Scholarship Fundraising Challenge - 12/7/13
We began a journey on 8/25/2013 to raise $100 per day in Bemley Scholarship donations or pledges. Our purpose is to double the amount of college scholarship dollars that we give out next year from $17,500 (2013) to $35,000 (2014). If we raise $100 per day ... we can reach that goal.We have hit our goal 24-of-104 days (23%) raising $11,966.
We appreciate the recent online pledge of support of the Bemley Scholarship Fund made by Ben Hasan (Wal-Mart), CompTIA Member Communities, Erica Rice (UnitedHealth Group) and Cynthia Hill-Watson (TVA).
Why is this important? One reason is so that we can be more supportive of BDPA High School Computer Competition Alums like Courtney Elzy (HSCC Class of 2008) - http://betf.blogspot.com/2011/08/bemley-scholar-courtney-elzy-heads-to.html. Courtney was trained by BDPA Chicago chapter . She used her Bemley Scholarship to support her study of graphics design at Illinois State University.
