June 11, 2010 - I was happy to see that the business paper in Providence, the city where ConnectEDU began, reached out to interview Ted Fischer, our President and Chief Operating Officer. The paper was interested in understanding a few key things about our work. First, they focused on the fact that we follow the student through her various transition points from high school to college to career. They immediately got it that, from the student’s point of view, this is a single pathway to be able to achieve her goals and that the pathway needs to be seamless. They also understood how important it is to use verified data to inform the process, and our ability to increase transparency for students, while also reducing time and errors within the application process. Teddy’s commitment to our students to give them best opportunity to achieve their dreams of a college education and a promising career shone through the interview.
Congrats, again, Teddy – we’re glad to have you on our team.
