TKPC "BUD" Scholarship Recipients

Back in January futrbechbum reached out to me with a neat idea. He wanted to pay for a deserving community member's entry into TKPC. Cover the cover. That idea grew into the "BUD" scholarship.

Subsequently, both CapeHokie and gobble gobble chumps wanted to know how they could help too. At the end of the day, the community nominated three deserving TKPers: twamp, Tyler Fanning, and ThunderingHokie (formerly jwillhokiealum). And all had Year One of TKPC covered. 👏

A big thanks to futrbechbum, CapeHokie and gobble gobble chumps.

Not only did they did they hook up twamp, Tyler Fanning, and ThunderingHokie, but helped out TKP during a tough time when it's experienced a loss of revenues. Thanks all!

And for anyone who wants to help support TKP, join The Key Players Club.

I had been debating whether or not I should make a thank you post, wasn't sure where to put it. Looks like Joe made it an easy decision. Huge shoutout to GGC for the subscription, glad to be fully dipped!

Well done folks!

It's definitely gonna take a bit to get used to remembering thunderhokie = jwillhokiealum, just like it did getting used to "Granville" and "Little Bobby Tables"

That said, welcome to the gang gang. Jumping in to support someone was a no brainer for me, even going back to my own initial joining of TKPC in 2018. TKP is what it is because of the community and the content, and this is a simple way to support both at the same time!

I'm more than happy to help a fellow Hokie!

Congratulations to the awardees and thank you to the sponsors for their generous support. Sorry I was rather MIA when the plan was being formulated and the nominations made.

Joe, count me in for next year as a sponsor.

I really appreciate being chosen to be one of the BUD recipients. Shout-out to those who made it happen for all 3 of us!

Congrats! Now y'all are going to get all the #saucydeets for a year. Welcome to the TKPC!

More than happy to help. I'd emailed Joe about the idea before COVID, and as we worked out the details, and COVID hit....well, even more happy to help out in these wacko times.

Congrats BUD's!

The Cup is going nowhere Mikey!

Love this site

I had a busy weekend and am just now getting around to seeing this. Thanks for being such an awesome community! I wanted to join for awhile but didn't feel like I could justify it until I was out of school and/or making a little more money. I am very excited about this and look forward to taking part in more detailed discussions about Virginia Tech!
