KidsTek has always been lucky to have passionate volunteers to support our work, but this year has been truly extraordinary. Between long-time supporters and new members of the KidsTek family, we have been blessed with an abundance of amazing folks dedicated to supporting our students.
To show our gratitude, we hosted an appreciation event and tour of PCs for People’s Denver location last week. Though not all of our incredible volunteers were able to attend, we were glad to see some of our most dedicated supporters.
Morgan Sauer was KidsTek’s Volunteer of the Year last year and continues to support our students at Altura Elementary in Aurora. Morgan is a pediatric ER nurse at Children’s Hospital and daughter of Nancy Sauer, former KidsTek Board Chair in whose honor our annual scholarship is awarded.
David and Susan Stern have been supporters KidsTek for over 20 years. David was a KidsTek board member for many years, and has a background in business and technology.
Scott Pantall helps out once a week in KidsTek’s Intro to Programming class at Hinkley High School and is always happy to share his advice and expertise with our students. Scott is a software engineer for Chipotle and his nontraditional path into the tech industry has been an inspiration for KidsTek students.
Isaac Osei is our newest volunteer. He is a senior at Hinkley High School and an alum of KidsTek’s Intro to Programming and A+ Certification Prep courses. Isaac also helps our elementary after school programs in Aurora.
Joining this slate of supporters were a number of folks from the KidsTek and PCs for People team: Instructor Megan Frazier, who teaches our after school programs in Aurora and works with volunteers Morgan and Isaac; Program Director Andrew Bissland; Program Manager Emily Tow; and PCs for People’s Manager of Business Development, Meghan Kessler.
Thank you again to all of our wonderful volunteers, both those who were able to join us and those we hope to host in the future! We couldn’t do this work without you.
