Dale Henninger, an information technology instructor at Inver Hills Community College, was selected as one of two instructors for the Cisco 2014 Dream Team, which is composed of 10 Cisco Networking Academy students from across the U.S. and Canada. Selected on technical and professional skills, instructor recommendations, activities outside the classroom, and geographical and individual diversity, the Dream Team will represent their academy at Cisco Live, Cisco’s largest customer event, May 18–22, 2014, in San Francisco, Calif.
“The Dream Team gets a unique development opportunity to work hands-on alongside industry leaders to deploy and support the event Network Operations Center (NOC) and support Cisco customers at the Help Desk,” reported Joni Blakeslee, a senior manager with the Cisco Networking Academy. “It’s hard work, long hours, and lots of walking, but the experience is invaluable to their resumes and careers. Now in our fourth year, the Dream Team has become a vital element to the success of Cisco Live, demonstrating quality IT talent and helping deliver a positive experience for more than 20,000 attendees.”

The Minn-Kota Region includes Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.
“Distinguished Regional Officer Teams are honored for their ability to work cohesively to identify and implement the region’s goals, to act as leaders for chapters and members within the region, and to support the mission of Phi Theta Kappa,” reported Tria Cohen, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Societ key services manager. “Three Phi Theta Kappa regional officer teams will be honored with the 2014 Distinguished Regional Officer Team Awards presented by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society during NerdNation 2014, the annual convention in Orlando, Fla., April 24–26, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.”
“It’s really quite an honor for Jackson and the others on his team,” said Richard Jewell, an IHCC English and humanities instructor and Phi Theta Kappa faculty co-advisor. “And the fact that one of our own chapter members is on the winning team shows not only the quality of Jackson as a regional officer, but also the type of quality that we nurture and support in Phi Theta Kappa at Inver Hills.”
