RISTE Presents Partnership Awards to New England Tech staff

Rhode Island Society of Technology Educator (RISTE) presented partnership awards to Erin Flynn (Manager of Admissions Outreach) and Amanda Metzger (Special Events Coordinator) at their monthly member meeting held at New England institute of Technology.

RISTE’s mission is to promote excellence in education through the integration of existing and emerging technologies.  Through workshops, member meetings, speakers, vendor presentations, and other events the organization works to keep educators current in their knowledge of technology integration in our schools.

NEIT has supported RISTE for many years by providing meeting and training space for our activities.  Erin and Amanda have been instrumental in this support and have gone out of their way to accommodate the group’s needs.

On this day RISTE wanted to take a moment and thank them both for all of their help and support and to show that with a presentation of a partnership award.

Thank You Erin and Amanda!
