Umoh & Brown's Drone Camp in a Box Featured on WJZ Baltimore

This was going to be a big summer for Eno Umoh '04 and Austin Brown '05, founders of Global Air Media, whose Drone Academy uses drones to get kids interested in science, technology, engineering, art, and math careers. But, the pandemic forced them to rethink their summer camp. The result, Drone Camp in a Box, flips the paradigm, so rather than the kids coming to camp, they take the camp to the kids. Their goal is to provide 500 kids with a box, free of charge. To do this, they need to raise $62,500. Click here to read more and see a video of the story.

Dr. Andy Sabatier DPT '01

Dr. Andy Sabatier DPT '01 is the lead physical therapist in a mixed ICU in Central Oregon. While far from the patient surge levels of places like New York, he and his team are all adjusting to life in the new reality and are proud to report that, "thanks in part to the innovative involvement of rehab services, we currently maintain a 100% survival rate for all COVID patients, even the sickest ones who are on ventilators for weeks." While most folks think of doctors and nurses in an ICU, the work of critical care PT can be the difference between life and death, or survival and returning to a full life. He is pictured wearing a CAPR system that allows patients to see the faces of their clinicians, thereby fostering more effective communication, which he describes as "truly a difference-maker." 

Michael Saunders '93

After sixteen years of running a transportation company, Michael Saunders '93 was ready for a change that would allow for greater community engagement and was eager to put to use the many lessons he had learned in the service industry.  So, he decided to launch a coffee company.  Then, a global pandemic hit.  And so, he pivoted again, putting the needs of the community first, and has partnered with the GIlman to do a canned food drive and raise funds for meals for frontline workers and those experiencing food insecurity.  Learn more on the Spinning Cups Coffee Facebook page.
