Our congratulations go to Alberto Carvalho, superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools and his team on winning the Broad Prize for Urban Education. The prize provides $550K in college scholarships. You can do your part to support our public schools. Our community action through programs including the www.AOIT.org truly makes a difference. Attend the ITPalooza session on IT Internships to learn how to prepare your company for interns. Hire an IT intern, prepare our next generation for success. If you live in Miami-Dade, I implore you to vote in favor of the $1.2B school bond referendum. Superintendent Carvalho has earned our trust. More..
