OBAP's 40th CONVENTION WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!"On behalf of my self Torkwase and my daughter, Leslie Sekou, I thank OBAP for introducing to my daughter the avenue to her dream of a career in Aerospace. This past week in Chicago was both an enlightening and empowering experience for Leslie. I saw in her for the first time a true comfort with a choice made solely on her own and the confidence that she will accomplish her goals. We look forward to seeing you all in Orlando!" -Yejide Sekou
"Once again, another great convention has concluded. It's always a pleasure to meet the people who post we read and like face to face. Congratulations to all the scholarship recipients. Good luck to all of those looking for that next job/opportunity. For those who didn't attend, you missed a great gathering, hopefully you'll be able to participate next time. Let's continue to motivate and inspire each other until we meet again."-Geoff Berry
