TransTechSol recognizes the importance of social values and encourages our staff to contribute to their communities. In the past few years, we have donated more than $100,000 and countless hours of service to organizations focused on diversity, education and youth initiatives.
To further demonstrate a commitment to our communities, TransTechSol provides a matching gift program to 501(c)(3) charities that are important to each of our employees. Read below about a few of our special team members and how they give of their time and talents to others.
Dwayne is the founder and President of Charm City Scuba Club of Baltimore, Inc., a chapter of the National Association of Black Scuba Divers. As a community change agent, he has introduced SCUBA as a tool to expose African-American youth to new cultures and career paths in marine-related studies. Dwayne is a PADI-certified SCUBA Instructor and serves as the Dive Safety Officer for the Black Girls Dive Foundation, Inc.
Through the Foundation, Dwayne makes a positive social-impact through special educational opportunities to include a nationally recognized program that integrates Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics with SCUBA diving (STREAMS).
The theme of #internationalwomensday in 2022 was to #breakthebias, which is exactly what our Principal Systems Engineer, Phenesia Eusebio, has done at TransTechSol. Phenesia's positivity and infectious energy light up the room and leave a indelible impression on everyone she meets.
Phenesia's leadership has resulted in delivering a major IC agency dissemination system and creating a database that pioneered efforts to establish a baseline for mission compliance certification status. However, perhaps Phenesia's greatest impact is the mentoring that she delivers to service members transitioning from the military to civilian or contractor roles. We applaud Phenesia's tireless efforts to ensure that service members recognize the impact of their military experiences and how to effectively translate those experiences into value for our government.
Krista Harris Cheatham
Since the spring of 2020, Krista has been volunteering her time and donating supplies to Columbia Community Care trying to ensure that local families hit hard by the pandemic - and by life - have access to basic necessities.
"I'm struck by the diversity both of the folks who are there to donate or serve as well as the folks who are standing in line: young and old, black, brown, and white, male and female. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to serve each week, and I'm grateful to say that TransTechSol and its personnel have generously donated both money and time in support of this cause."
