Yesterday was a really big day for me. Not only was it my birthday, but I had several people step up to show their support for me and this competition. @Iowaarcheryboy @gletham @MikeHogan & @Geothinkers all took the time to tweet my need for support yesterday. Many others over the last few days have also sent out a tweet or two for me. Glenn (@gletham) also wrote the blog post, Help A College Student get to the SkillsUSA Geospatial Technology Competition, to spread the word a little further. These actions resulted in nearly 50 visits to my SkillsUSA Geospatial Competition page yesterday alone. I really appreciate the time these took to spread the word.
I am also very appreciate to @MikeHogan who also made a big step to support me financially. Such sacrifices really mean a lot to me and gives me the encouragement to continue pressing on. I hope others can follow in the footsteps of these and find a way to support this effort. I truely believe in this opportunity and I hope you will too.
