High School Computer Competition Testimonial

Trevor Williams

My name is Trevor H. Williams. I am from Torrence, CA. I joined BDPA as a student member in 2005.  Currently, I am a junior at Zebulon Vance High School in Charlotte, NC.

My goal is to major in computer science at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA after I graduate from college.  After college, I plan to start my own information technology (IT) firm and in some form or fashion give back to BDPA.

BDPA has been the best thing that has ever happened to me.  I only knew how to download music from the Internet before I began taking the high school computer competition (HSCC) classes and competing in the national competition.  Now, I know more than I could have ever imagined … I know more than some adults.

The experience has been great. Traveling around the country has been great. However, most important, the purpose of HSCC is even greater.  HSCC training taught me that teamwork is very important.

My greatest experience so far has been meeting Martin Davis, Wachovia’s Corporate CIO. By meeting him and learning about what he does, I learned that IT could take you far, farther than your wildest imagination.   IT can make a person, no matter whom or what you are, a successful person.  BDPA has taught me life-lessons that I will never forget, and I am truly thankful to the organization
