Made possible by our outstanding ERATC Platinum Partners: Lite the Night, and ByteSpeed, Inc. The East Region Association of Technology Coordinators is abundantly proud to announce after 48 years of service, dedication, and, excitement in creating greater opportunity for the education of Eastern Kentucky’s children, upon this occasion of Mr. Harold Burchell’s retirement we announce the first annual Harold Burchell Lifetime Achievement Scholarship Award!
After 23 years as an educator, 5 years as the Floyd County Schools CIO & District Technology Coordinator and 20 years as the Region 8 Kentucky Education Technology System Engineer we honor his dedication for making Eastern Kentucky a better place.

They will be asked to include their plan for utilizing their STEAM education to make their community and Eastern Kentucky better, following Mr. Burchell’s legacy.
