Dr. Tony Bennett, Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction has joined Net Literacy’s Honorary Board.
The Net Literacy Honorary Board, Chaired by Senator Richard Lugar, includes Indiana’s leadership ranging from Lt. Governor Skillman to Congressman Carson and from Indianapolis Mayor Ballard to Fort Wayne Mayor Henery. The Indiana General Assembly has passed several resolutions in support of Net Literacy’s digital literacy, digital inclusion, and Internet safety programs.
“Dr. Bennett joined the Net Literacy Honorary Board because he believes that our student-managed all-volunteer organization whose board is 60% comprised of students is helping to increase student success. We are grateful that for his personal endorsement of our Financial Connects contest and appreciate the IDOE’s support of our Computer Connects and Safe Connects programs. Through one of our partnerships funded by the IDOE, Net Literacy is providing computers to 15 21st Century Community Learning Center grantees,” said Daniel Kent, Net Literacy Founder and Student President.
