The Making IT Happen award honors outstanding educators and leaders who demonstrate extraordinary commitment, leadership, courage and persistence in improving digital learning opportunities for students.
Sheila Adams, two time past president, has been a dedicated member of NHSTE for many years! She is someone who is always ready to help and go the extra mile for the organization. Sheila has worn almost every hat that exists in our organization and is a great collaborator. As an educator, Sheila has been an early adopter of technology tools, from using the first dial up access, to getting involved in the Roadkill project, to diving into GIS, to utilizing 3D printers and drones, all with the goal of maximizing her students' learning. As soon as Sheila figures out a new technology, she shares it with others! She is a gem!
Anne Knight is one of the founding members of NHSTE and has contributed so much over the many years of her membership. She was twice president of a precursor organization to today's NHSTE and has been a leader, volunteer, and NHSTE advocate for many years. She has been a great collaborator in New Hampshire, working with many stakeholders in the state to forward the effective use of technology in educating New Hampshire students, and has been a tech mentor and role model as well as a lifelong learner! She is a treasure!
