An update tonight from the South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor) students preparing to compete in next month’s international Aerospace Maintenance Competition: They now have enough funding to make the trip! CrystalRose Hudelson first shared news of the all-woman team’s competition plan last month, and then sent word that they were crowdfunding to cover the cost of the trip. Tonight she shared the news:
GREAT news: between private donations and the school’s further financial addition, we are fully vested to attend the competition! Now that we are not as focused on the how-to, we are immersing ourselves in our studies to do our donors and school proud. We are deeply grateful to those who have donated towards our cause and will not forget it. We are also grateful to the school for being ever diligent in doing their part.
She says they’ve added more training sessions – not just to be extra-prepared, but also because the competition “added a few new and exciting events.” College spokesperson Kevin Maloney says the board that decides how to spend some of the student-fee money at SSCC voted to award the effort $6,000.
