Great decision and choice by MVLA! Having a dedicated cabinet-level person in this role is wise. Faught knows her stuff and is well-respected by MVLA teachers.

Congrats Teri, and good news for the students.

I've found Teri to be kind, knowledgeable, and genuinely caring about the well-being of all of the students. Nice to see the board appointed a person with actual knowledge of educational technology to the role, particularly given the importance distance learning plays in our new normal.
