S.T.E.A.M. Champs founder Niesha Butler received a very exciting letter from the Atlantic 10 Conference Commissioner, Bernadette V. McGlade. The Atlantic 10, a conference that supports student-athletes in the classroom as well as on the court, wanted to celebrate the kids in Brooklyn who have an interest in learning S.T.E.A.M. and pursuing tech careers. They invited our founder, Niesha Butler, a former ALL-American at Georgia Tech and the S.T.E.A.M. Champions to attend A-10 Men’s Basketball Championship game and be recognized at center court at the the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The S.T.E.A.M. Champs staff were really excited that the sports community decided to celebrate and honor students who are interested in S.T.E.A.M. As quoted from Butler, “Usually it’s only the athletic kids, but now it’s also cool to be smart.”
“Thank you to the Commissioner of the Atlantic 10 and our founder’s head coach at Georgia Tech, Agnus Berenato, for always supporting academic excellence!! I’m especially grateful because I am passionate about creating a culture that supports S.T.E.A.M. excellence for kids IN THE SAME MANNER WE SUPPORT ATHLETIC EXCELLENCE!! We as a community need to keep the same energy when supporting a kid interested in engineering the same as basketball or football,” Butler said on her Facebook post.
