• Questions? Interest? Query Dan Cruz
(dcruz@CyberTexas.org) for more information.
Remember -- Interest is not Commitment
• The area’s teams sometimes need only specific or
temporary expertise. You could be part of a general
pool of Mentors
• Middle Schools are also competing. They may have a
more rudimentary need of expertise but possess the
same level of enthusiasm
• Pass the word. Others may be interested in helping.
Every bit of support helps the San Antonio region’s
teams
