Just added trustee, Daniel Rossi-Keen did the unthinkable in 2012. He opened an independently owned bookstore, calling the endeavor E-Quip Books. Dr. Keen wants it to be the keystone to reviving a downtrodden Aliquippa community. The name is unique as it is a play on location, Aliquippa, the items it sells and the goal of the business. When asked about joining the BCET board, he had this to say,

“I am excited about the future of education in Beaver County, and I respect the work that BCET is doing to contribute to educational excellence throughout our region. I wanted to be a part of that story, and serving on the BCET Board of Trustees seemed like a great way to expand my involvement in our County.”

Dr. Keen joins the BCET board hoping to use his strengths in strategic planning to equip those in the community with the resources needed to achieve success in academics. His favorite BCET program is the “Great Ideas Mini-Grants” and he had this to say about it,

“I love empowering others to be able to move forward with great ideas. The most effective leaders and organizations are those who recognize excellence and then incentivize its flourishing. This program does precisely that, and it excites me for that reason.” 

The BCET wishes to thank Dr. Keen for joining the board of trustees and looks forward to working with him.
