She was also recognized for chairing the Business Education Technology Alliance, which promotes technology in education.

Senate Majority Leader Tony Rand, state Sen. David Hoyle and Reps. Pryor Gibson, Margaret Dickson and Rick Glazier received public leadership awards at the ceremony.

Re: Perdue receives tech award

Bev Perdue wins award from lobbyists. Lobbyist love Bev Perdue and contribute heavily to her campaign... in other news the sun rose this morning...

Really, I know this is a blog, but do you have to reprint press releases verbatim?

We?

I'm not sure about "we" but I see a gigantic public health crisis building around obesity. It's a better use of funds than giving $43 million to tire manufacturers.

Re: Perdue receives tech award

Online fitness training? Do we really think online fitness training is an important use of state funds?
