NORTHBOROUGH, MA — March 18, 1998 — Donovan Group will contribute public relations services to TECH CORPS, a national non-profit organization dedicated to giving America’s students a chance to have the most technologically advanced education possible.
TECH CORPS, some 8,000 volunteers strong, is at work in 42 states plus the District of Columbia training and helping teachers introduce technology into the nation’s K-12 classrooms and assisting with local technology planning issues.
“Just recently, the National IT Workforce Convention in Berkley named TECH CORPS as one of the nation’s ten ‘best practices’ in getting industry to address the nation’s growing need for skilled information technology workers. TECH CORPS has many new and exciting things already underway in 1998 – and we’re convinced the best is yet to come,” said Michael Donovan, Donovan Group President. “We are honored to be part of the TECH CORPS team.”
