Team 2998 VikingBots

Hello, my name is Kou Vang, and I am the lead mentor and coach for the Thomas Jefferson High School Robotics team. If you have any questions about donations, or how you can support the team, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Cell: 414-899-1293.

And for transparency - I manage a lot of the day to day funds needed through my personal account. I actually front a lot of the costs for the team and these funds help reimburse me. I record all donations and expenses to keep track of the balance for the team. Any unused funds at the end of the year will be transferred to our TJ Vikings Fund  account.

Thank you for your support!
