October 11 is a special day for Tech-Girls. We launched on the first International Day of the Girl on October 11, 2012. It’s a day when activist groups come together under the same goal to highlight, discuss, and take action to advance rights and opportunities for girls everywhere.

Why spend time volunteering? Most of the time, it means working behind-the-scenes for the greater good, to be part of something that is bigger than you that’s changing the world or at least your part of it. You don’t do it for the recognition, but because you are passionate about the work. So being recognized as the 2016 Volunteer of the Year was an honor and icing on the cake of my volunteer experience with CBIC.

I recently came across an Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) news story announcing that Vince Scheivert had received the 2015 Frank Withrow Award from the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), a national organization for school system technology leaders. It’s noteworthy not just because the award recognizes the country’s most exceptional Chief Information Officer (CIO), a position that Vince holds with ACPS, but because Vince is also a CBIC board member.
