Congratulations everyone.


This one, like plenty of others, was long overdue. Dave has been the bedrock of 2220 almost since the team started, and plays a huge role in almost every aspect of our team. It’s always great to see deserving mentors win WFFA, but it feels even better when it’s someone who was a great mentor to me when I was a student. and who I now have even more respect for working alongside him as a mentor.

Also was happy to see Mike win. He’s a mainstay at Minnesota FRC and FTC events, and has put together another fantastic program in our district.

Sorry that last week was a very busy week but here are Week 4 WFFA, please forgive the delay.
