NEIT's Flynn invited to State of Union

January 25, 2012

Erin Flynn, a 25-year veteran administrator at the New England Institute of Technology, was invited to President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday as the guest of U.S. Rep. Jim Langevin (D-R.I., District 2).

Flynn has partnered with Langevin on one of his key workforce development efforts, the High School Cyber Foundations Competition, which Langevin introduced to his home state as a model for introducing young people to expanding industries like cybersecurity.

Obama Administration officials have said the president will make “Skills for American Workers” one of the pillars of his speech, and he will propose new ideas for ensuring America's workforce is ready to excel at the jobs of today and tomorrow.
