Many of you may have already had the pleasure of meeting or speaking with Silva Helmer, who joined our staff as Office Manager in early 2015 and has quickly become an invaluable asset to the Rebuilding Together Team. We have also been fortunate to have her teenage son, Ethan, work with us as a volunteer. Ethan is passionate about robots and his team, the Como Cougears, recently competed at the 10,000 Lakes Regional with their robot BEASTBot. Rebuilding Together is proud to support Ethan and his team and loaned some of our tools to the team. Unfortunately, the team lost in a nail-biting tiebreaker round; however, BEASTBot’s Marketing Group took home the sought-after Entrepreneurship Award, and the team will advance to the State Tournament on May 21st at Williams Arena. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of Silva and Ethan and are proud to support this team! Congratulations!
