FCC Invites Community to Innovation and Technology Panel
September at Frederick Community College will be a busy month with a slate of exciting events as part of the Inauguration celebration for the College’s 11th president, Dr. Annesa Payne Cheek.
The celebration will kick off with an “Innovators of Thought” Speaker Series, where subject experts will envision futuristic and systemic impacts on people, culture, and our environment.
Maryland Tech Council CEO Kelly Schulz will moderate the “Innovation and Technology Panel,” which will be the first event of the three-part speaker series.
During the panel, Schulz will dialogue with David S. Baldwin, Mel Litter, and Paul D. Miller, Ed.D. – pioneers in the spheres of artificial intelligence, regenerative cultures, tech entrepreneurship, the metaverse, and more.
“We are thrilled to host this panel of leaders representing cutting-edge industries and mindsets in the world of technology,” said Dr. Renee Davis, FCC Associate Vice President for the Center for Teaching & Learning. “President Cheek often asks us as employees of the College what we are doing to ‘feed’ our minds. This panel is the perfect way to contribute to also feeding the minds of our community.”
