Career Communications Group (CCG) Publisher and CEO Tyrone Taborn received a $15,000 donation Wednesday for its Foundation for Educational Development Technology Awareness Program from AT&T Regional Director for External & Legislative Affairs LaTara Harris at CCG's Baltimore office. 

"We applaud you, Tyrone... and the entire CCG team for your tireless efforts in raising the awareness of opportunities for women and people of color and beyond. You've been fighting this fight for many years and we are so grateful for your contributions. Keep pressing Tyrone! Your contributions are making a difference!," Ms. Harris said.

"Throughout our history, CCG has been active in giving back. And long before the now popular term "Social Entrepreneur" became fashionable, CCG was at the forefront of social entrepreneurship. We have since formalized our community giving through our foundation, FEDI," Taborn said.

The Foundation for Educational Development, Inc., a 501(c), was founded in 1993 to promote career opportunities in engineering, science, and technology to historically underrepresented groups in STEM fields through professional and career development, educational programs, awards programs, and career placement opportunities.

Every summer, CCG's US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine hosts Technology Awareness Program (TAP) Student Leadership Symposia. The three-day camps are designed to emphasize academic achievement, personal health and career development in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to high school students. They also provide a forum for students to learn from leading STEM professionals and college professors about topics such as cyber security, energy, and the Armed forces. Students also participate in college preparation sessions focused on goal setting, SAT preparation, and study skills.
