Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion

Betsy Steele - Sr. Marketing Manager Microsoft

“Court Rye, David Scully, Jason Latimer, and Aaran Secor went well above and beyond the call of duty to make this event a success. They spent their own money and utilized personal contacts to acquire an Xbox 360 with the intent of promoting the event and Microsoft. Court was the primary student interface and all the students spent enormous amounts of their personal time during the weeks leading up to the event to help make it the successful, great event that it was!”
