Spence White Service Award

Spence White


The INFOhio Spence White Service Award seeks to recognize exemplary service provided to the INFOhio community by ITC personnel. The recipient will demonstrate a dedication to the vision of INFOhio and outstanding support for the delivery of the INFOhio project.

Spence White did much to make INFOhio possible. As an ITC Director, Spence recognized very early on how the Ohio Education Computer Network could support INFOhio's vision of providing equal access to information resources to all Ohio students and teachers. Spence believed wholeheartedly in INFOhio’s goals, and he worked tirelessly to make INFOhio a reality after he retired as a Director.

While he is no longer with us, we celebrate his legacy and hold it as a standard of excellence as we move forward. We do that by recognizing the tireless efforts of others to make Spence’s vision a reality.

Please consider nominating an ITC employee you believe should be recognized for his or her efforts in support of INFOhio.
