Congratulations to Dr. Swanier!

Our own Dr. Cheryl Swanier, Academic Liaison at Fort Valley State University, has been selected by the White House as a Champion of Change for Tech Inclusion.  As part of the Champions of Change program, the White House regularly recognizes different groups of Americans who are making positive change in their communities.  The Champions event honors people and organizations that are making an impact in their communities and in the world by helping connect kids, particularly from underrepresented communities, to technology opportunities.

Dr. Swanier was selected because of her tremendous work and leadership, and was honored at an event at the White House in July.  Congratulations, Dr. Swanier!
