Student Highlight
We were happy to welcome former Computer Mentors student, Martin Brouillard this week.  Martin has several recent successes that he wanted to share with our current STEM Corps students.

Martin is 22 years old and is a recent graduate of the University of Central Florida.  He earned his Bachelor's in Information Technology with a focus in Software Engineering.  Martin is currently employed in the Healthcare field with NantHealth as a Software Engineer. NantHealth performs innovative cancer technology research. Martin also worked with Siemens Energy as an Engineering Intern during his Senior year of college.  

Martin shared some valuable advice to the students, such as the importance of getting good grades, earning certifications, interning, and also how to balance work and play during college life.

Martin was a student at Computer Mentors during his high-school years.  He participated in the Computer Mentors' Tech Bowl and won 3rd place in 2010 and 1st place in 2011.  Martin graduated from Freedom High School in May of 2012.

"I have greatly appreciated everything that Computer Mentors has done for me," says Martin.  "The concepts and methodologies helped me tremendously throughout my college career and now in my work place.  This experience also strengthened my resume with the projects that provided me real work experience and a place to improve my skills."
President's Message

What an honor it was to highlight the legacy of Theresa A. Manuel, the first African-American woman to represent Florida in the Olympics, in our Legacy Video Series unveiling.  With a generous sponsorship from the Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners, with special thanks to Comm. Les Miller, this Legacy Video Series was developed in partnership with Kerrick Williams Photography, Sula Too LLC (Ersula Odom-McLemore), and seven youth participants of Computer Mentors.  Kerrick Williams’ staff trained and assisted CMG youth who were engaged at every step of the process and learned employable skills as well as a new appreciation for their community by working on these stories.

These videos will be available for utilization by the Hillsborough County school district, by several Hillsborough County library branches and will be displayed online by CMG and other community sites.  

Computer Mentors Group currently has 80 youth enrolled in Information Technology and video training as part of its STEM Corps High School Program. The program is a continuation of the Youth Computer Training program that CMG has successfully sustained for the last 18 years.
