Thanks A Trillion Verizon Wireless!

1 October 2014

The New Media Institute would like to thank Verizon Wireless and Julie Smith, Vice President of External Affairs, once again for their overly generous donation of $15,000 for elder new media development!

Each semester NMIX students join together to work on projects that promote positive change through new media technology, and we wouldn’t have the opportunity to make as strong of an impact on new media development without the ongoing support of Verizon!

This semester the NMIX 2020 class is focusing on projects that deal with elder new media development. Last Friday, Verizon Wireless joined the Intro to New Media class for a surprise check presentation and an appreciation party.

During the party, a student from each project group shared a brief description of their project and their vision of how to help the elder generation through new media technology with Verizon Wireless executives and Grady College Board or Trust members.

The afternoon was full of promising ideas, good laughs, and yes… lots and lots of cupcakes!
