Fredericka, INFOhio Executive Director. "She has worked directly with teachers and students in grades 3-12 to include the use of INFOhio resources in on-going assignments. In addition, Carol has demonstrated her leadership in promoting INFOhio to her staff, administration, board of education, and community."
Carol is a member of INFOhio's Electronic Resources Task Force. Gibson said, "Association with INFOhio leaders has further challenged me to become an even stronger advocate for INFOhio and, in particular, my own school community. Serving on the Electronic Resources Task Force over the next two years will afford me many opportunities for learning and for input. Thanks, INFOhio, for the inspiration!"
