Granville Triumph Presents at William Wordsworth School Career Day
Atlantic-IT.net CEO Granville Triumph was honored to participate in Career Day at the William Wordsworth School on May 16th. The school asked Mr. Triumph to share his background with the students and help them begin exploring the idea of a career in business or information technology.
For his presentation, Mr. Triumph chose the topic of “What Is a CEO?” so that the students could learn what business leaders do each day and how they might one day become one. He also discussed the personal traits executives must possess and the responsibilities that come with running a business, highlighted by examples of famous CEOs. Atlantic-IT.net intern Karim Cole joined him in the presentation, providing a real-life example of the transition from school to work in a corporate environment.
Daniel Pearl Education Center Golf Outing
Atlantic-IT.net sponsored the 2014 golf outing supporting the Daniel Pearl Education Center, a nonprofit, charitable organization committed to the ideals of understanding and community. Those principles are part of the legacy of the late Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered by extremists in Pakistan in 2002.
The Daniel Pearl Education Center sponsors a wide range of community outreach and education programs, including an annual trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, a college scholarship program at East Brunswick High School, “teaching tolerance” workshops for area teachers, and more.
The Valerie Fund
The Valerie Fund is a New Jersey-based organization that provides medical care, counseling and other services for children with cancer and blood disorders. The Valerie Fund Children’s Centers represent the state’s largest network of facilities that care for these children, hosting more than 25,000 patients each year. At these healthcare centers, a team of social workers, counselors, psychologists and child-life specialists work together to treat and support both the children and their families. The Valerie Fund also operates Camp Happy Time, a one-week overnight camp experience for children at the 200-acre Tyler Hill Camp in Wayne County, Pa.
Atlantic-IT.net is proud to sponsor the Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) – Mid-Jersey Chapter Annual Charity Golf Tournament, which benefits the Valerie Fund. This year the tournament was held at the spectacular Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. Hearing real stories about children who have benefited from the Valerie Fund while battling life-threatening illnesses is incredibly moving and makes our participation in this event that much more rewarding.
BDPA New Jersey Families in Technology Day
Atlantic-IT.net was honored to give a presentation on smartphone and social media safety for kids and their families at the Black Data Processing Associates New Jersey (BDPA-NJ) 10th Annual Families in Technology Day, an event created to increase technology awareness in Northern and Central New Jersey communities.
Modern technology makes it possible for families and friends to stay in touch like never before. Handwritten letters and phone calls on holidays and birthdays have been replaced by a steady stream of shared photos, instant messages and texts. While this technology allows us to stay constantly connected, it also creates safety issues that can put our children at risk. Our presentation discussed what families can do to minimize that risk.
BDPA-NJ Families in Technology Day featured workshops about finance, technology and family health, and a keynote from Dr. Randal Pinkett, Chairman and CEO, BCT Partners and Season Four winner of “The Apprentice” on NBC. At the end of the day, more than 100 laptops donated by a corporate partner were raffled to students between grades four and 12 who submitted a one-paragraph statement about how they can benefit from receiving a computer.
