TTU Hosting Governor's School For IT Leadership

Thirty-six high school students from throughout Tennessee are engaged in a fascinating time of discovery though the Governor’s School for IT Leadership. The school is held at Tennessee Tech University each summer and it allows the students to develop business plans using information technology solutions to real-world business problems, said Curtis Armstrong, decision sciences and management chairperson within the College of Business. The school is now in its ninth year and involves 18 girls and 18 boys. It began during the Memorial Day weekend and concludes this week with formal presentations to a group of judges made up of business leaders from the community.
