Creating the Difference LLC was founded in May 2015 by Ronald Hickland Jr. Through his years in bowling, Ronald could see a need for education among bowlers. Many bowlers lack an understanding of the fundamentals of the game. Creating the Difference seeks to educate bowlers and inspire people to work together to grow the sport of bowling. We strive to grow the sport of bowling through positive publicity, education and inspiring youth to find a passion for the sport.
Creating the Difference has an education arm aside from bowling as well. With Ronald's background as a mechanical engineer, he leads the company in helping spark a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in local schools. Creating the Difference LLC is a Partner in Education with the Clarksville Montgomery County School System in Tennessee and assists on the STEM Advisory Board for the system's STEM Academy. Creating the Difference speaks to teachers about how to relate STEM to every day life and help spark an interest in their students. We also speak to students to help them see that STEM careers are everywhere and can be cool.
