Essence Benson is a competitor. She comes from a family of athletes and she played soccer and basketball for Hinkley High School throughout her four years there. Her dad played defensive tackle during his football career and she inherited the indomitable attitude it takes to play that position. Her competitiveness and perseverance led her to become one of KidsTek’s top students this year and helped earn her KidsTek's Nancy Sauer Memorial Scholarship, awarded to her this past Monday during our annual Golf Tournament Fundraiser.

KidsTek is happy to work with the City of Aurora's COMPASS program again this summer. We currently teach COMPASS elementary classes at Paris, Sable, Fletcher and Vaughn Elementary schools. We also serve Mrachek Middle School and a class that includes students from East, North and South middle schools at Del Mar Park.

Instructor Craig Nason awarded digital cameras to two outstanding students at Escuela Tlatelolco. The students worked on digital photography projects and biographical PowerPoints this spring. One student winner said she would use the camera during a family trip to Yellowstone this summer. The other student was eager to show his little sister how it worked. Congrats to our students and thanks to Craig for a great spring!
