One of my colleagues, Sara Ford, just finished her first book on Visual Studio tips and will be donating all author book royalties to create a scholarship fund at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College for anyone living in her hometown of Waveland, LA MS. Wow!  Not only will the book be an incredible resource for VS developers, the scholarship fund is huge!  Talk about community building... :-)

From Sara's own words:

I am donating 100% of my author book royalties to create a scholarship fund at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College for anyone living in my hometown of Waveland, Mississippi, which was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. The Save Waveland Scholarship Fund will give preference to math and computer science majors.

USA Today referred to Waveland as The Town That Vanished. After witnessing the devastation first hand six weeks after the storm, I vowed that I would one day do something that would make a difference. With Microsoft matching the donation, I feel that day is today.


Congratulations on this great accomplishment, Sara!
