Fall is off to a Great Start – IT-oLogy Upstate IS growing the IT Talent Pipeline

Since we celebrated teaching our 100th student what seems like such long ago we are now looking beyond and to our great lineup for Fall classes. We are continuing strong in the Upstate with our Cyber Studio Classes and hope to reach more children in the coming months. Thanks goes out to Nicholas McElveen who instructed a group of 25 children in our first fall class on August 29th. He is a wiz at Scratch and the children enjoyed learning from him. I received Nicholas’ name thanks to Stanley Zea both who work at Clemson CU-ICAR. We are excited that other instructors have come forward and volunteered their time thanks to the many connections that Stanley has provided IT-oLogy Upstate.

Along with our wonder volunteer instructors I wanted to shout out to ECPI Greenville who so graciously allowed us to use their space once again for our Saturday classes. Thanks to the campus President Karen Burgess, as well as Michael Baker, Director of Admissions and Donna Swanger for helping me coordinate the room and event.

Our next class will be held on Saturday, September 19th as we will cover HTML. We are so proud of our recent class attendees and their successes and hope we are able to reach many more students in our classes in the coming months as well as expand our reach to other areas of the Upstate. If you would like to be a part of our success, volunteer in the classroom or as an instructor, or are able to provide classroom space in the Upstate please contact Lisa Calhoun at [email protected]. The remainder of our fall schedule will be posted shortly – please remember to look us up on Eventbrite and search “IT-oLogy Upstate” to reserve your space early.
