|Internet2 Issues Call for 2011 Richard Rose Award Nominees|
Award recognizes individual efforts to extend advanced networking benefits to broad education community
ANN ARBOR, Mich. February 9, 2011 – Internet2 today announced its call for nominations for the 2011 Richard Rose Award. The annual award, established in 2009, recognizes outstanding individual efforts aimed at extending the benefits of advanced networking to the broadest education community. The award will be presented at the Internet2 Spring 2011 Member Meeting in Arlington, Virginia to be held April 18-20, 2011. Nominations will be accepted until March 15, 2011.
Richard Rose (1947–2007) played an early and influential leadership role in Internet2's K20 Initiative, whose mission is to close the digital divide by bringing together Internet2’s advanced network and research university members with innovators from the nation's colleges, primary and secondary schools, libraries, museums and other educational institutions. This partnership extends new technologies, applications and rich, interactive educational content to everyone—no matter where they’re located.
"Richard helped to shape the K20 Initiative through his deep commitment and understanding of how advanced networking could enable new and innovative learning opportunities for all," said James Werle, director of the Internet2 K20 Initiative. Rose was the executive director of the University of Maryland Academic Telecommunications System and University System of Maryland (USM) Office of Information Technology.
The Rose Award celebrates educators or technologists who have had a demonstrable impact on the K20 community through the bringing together of diverse communities around common goals and projects, and have accumulated a record of community accomplishments. The award also presents an important opportunity to recognize the achievements of leaders across all educational sectors who are working hard to ensure that students of all ages and locations have access to the most advanced networking resources available.
The awards judging committee includes Carol Willis, manager of the Texas Education Telecommunications Network and Richard Rose Award Recipient; Jennifer Oxenford, strategic planning consultant for Mid-Atlantic Gigapop in Philadelphia for Internet2 (MAGPI) and Richard Rose Award Recipient; and David Lassner, vice president and chief information officer of the University of Hawaii and a Richard Rose Award Recipient. Carol Willis will chair the committee.
