CONGRATULATIONS TO RICHARD MORALES!

Please join the SAME Atlanta Post in congratulating our very own Richard Morales, Exploring Engineering Academy Committee Chair, for being recognized by Boy Scouts of America (BSA) by receiving the Whitney M Young, Jr. Service Award for his efforts in the STEM camp that SAME has been running over the last 20 years in conjunction with BSA.  This national award is designed to recognize those individuals and corporations who have been instrumental in the development of Scouting for rural, urban, and suburban youth who often face challenging barriers. This award recognizes "unsung heroes," those who do exceptional service for disadvantaged youth.

Thank you, Richard, for your commitment to the Exploring Engineer STEM Academy and SAME Atlanta Post!!

A Message from the Post President

Our March program focused on Resiliency. (Little did we know what a profound and unfortunate coincidence that would be.) Not all events which test our ability to be resilient have a defined start and end, nor a clear measure of impact in the short term. As the days pass by, we are challenged even more so by the effects of COVID-19 and just how resilient we truly are: globally, as a nation, as companies in our industry, in our families and as individuals. In an effort to find that delicate balance between taking action and providing normalcy, we are looking into ways to alter our programs to continue to provide outreach, education, and value to our members and communities. The Atlanta Post Board and Committee Chairs are continuing to meet monthly via conference calls and assess our events month-by-month, as well as receiving continuing guidance from National. The SAME Centennial Year begins in 2020 and goes through May 2021. With that in mind, some of our events planned for 2020, may now become part of Centennial Finale 2021! Please note the following:

  • CANCELLED: April 14th, Ft McPherson - Military to Movies & More. There is a great amount of interest in this program and we are looking into a new date in the fall or possibly in 2021.
  • CANCELLED: May 5th, Connect in 2020. Small Business Symposium. While this event serves as our biggest networking and fundraising event of the year, we intend to keep this program intact and simply roll it into a Centennial Finale in 2021. That said, we are currently looking into adding a Small Business expo-type component to our Annual Shrimp Boil event scheduled in early September 2020.
  • June/July/August Program - Summer DoD Series. These programs are currently continuing as scheduled, however, we are also looking into webinar options as a back-up.
  • SCHOLARSHIPS due May 1. With reduced revenue from our cancelled programs we likely will not be able to fund the full amount of scholarships that we’d hoped, but we will continue to provide our committed minimum scholarship amounts as previously announced. Please encourage current and college-bound students to apply by the deadline (see scholarship info below for details).
  • SUMMER CAMPS. Please monitor the websites provided below for any updates in summer camps. 

CANCELLED: Connect in 2020
