Introducing the New BVICO Gear Depot
Thanks to the effort of many dedicated ICO volunteers, we have, in the span of two weekends, completely relocated our gear to Casey Middle School. The new space is heated, well-lit, has access to bathrooms, has meeting space, and provides a covered area to use when loading/unloading vehicles. With the help of District Superintendant, Dr. Messinger, and his staff, we turned lemons into lemonade, transforming displacement from Manhattan Middle School into a net gain for the program. We are also now located at a school that prioritizes the sort of opportunities that our program provides. It also happens to be the school in Boulder with the highest percentage of kids in our target demographic. Many thanks to Casey Principal, Justin McMillan, for welcoming us into the new space. Thanks, too, to Catherine Powers, our long-time recruiter at Casey, whose dogged work in support of our program paved the way for us to land gracefully in this new home.
