Good News Tuesday: BDPA Student Member Francisco Nunez Accepts Summer Internship With HP

Soulclap to Perry Carter for letting us know about the internship offered by HP to Francisco Nunez this summer in the Washington DC area. He attends Morehouse College and maintains a 4.0 GPA. Francisco served as the High School Computer Competition (HSCC) co-captain for teams trained by BDPA Washington DC chapter. He helped his teams capture the BDPA Northeast Regional HSCC title for four consecutive years.

Francisco and his teammates also had remarkable success whenever they participated in the national HSCC championship during his high school years. As a result, he earned a number of Jesse Bemley Scholarships from the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation. Francisco is also a two-time BDPA-Oracle Scholar.

BDPA maintains his student membership with BDPA Washington DC chapter. BDPA is very proud of Francisco Nunez for his many accomplishments within the context of its HSCC Alumni program!

It is also great to see a BDPA corporate sponsor, HP, recognizing the talent that can be found within the organization. We talk about creating a pipeline of IT talent that can win the future. HP sees that BDPA is serious about advancing the careers of its members 'from the classroom to the boardroom'.

I encourage all villagers in the Chicago area to join us at the 33rd annual BDPA Technology Conference on August 3-6, 2011. You go to sports tournaments to find baseball, basketball and football prospects. You need to go to the BDPA conference to identify IT talent!
