BDPA Chicago

I am honored that the BDPA Chicago chapter asked me to serve as the master of ceremonies for their 2007 Annual Awards Banquet on Saturday, January 20, 2007 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago located at 151 East Wacker Drive in downtown Chicago. The Banquet will be preceded by a Career Fair at the Hyatt Regency C from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. on the same day. I appreciate the chapter officers (Yvette Graham and Pam Sexton) for reaching out to me for this assignment.

One of the highlights of the banquet will be the keynote speech from Cortez Trotter, Chief Emergency Officer, City of Chicago. In our highly volatile world, it is unique and uplifting to see a person of African-descent in such a critical position with one of the largest cities in the world. I encourage any Villager that lives near Chicago to make an effort to attend this event on 1/20/07. Click here to Purchase tickets for the Banquet or secure a booth for the fair.

Two of the students (Andreaus Robinson Jr. and Joseph Huggins Jr.) from the 2006 national championship HSCC team were in attendance at the banquet last night. As a result, the audience was informed that BETF wanted to increase the number of teams earning scholarships from 3 to 5 in 2007. Pledges to the Jesse Bemley Scholarship fund were made by the following banquet guests:

* Wanda Bell
* Frank Froegel
* Michael Gaines
* Marshia Hobson
* Louis Rosenthal
* Adam Stanley
