  1. Congratulations on continuing good job!

    I am beginning to put together a proposal for a sorely needed computer program set which will serve to better folks lives …fit to them wherever they are in the education pathways or their work experience. I think this proposal should be to Education Department and NSF jointly. I need to find a supporter or champion within the Department of Education.
    Thanks and keep up the good work.
