The Connect Rose Hill project was featured in a recent online article located at http://www.scienceprogress.org/. Click on the "Broadband Done Right" article, written by Nancy Scola.


About Science Progress...

The article leads out with, "Virginia rolls out high-speed Internet programs to boost jobs, health care, education, and commerce. It’s a model that works."


Here's an excerpt from the article:


"A recent post on Joan Minor’s Rose Hill Blog also highlights Black Bear Blast, a gathering of scientists and locals in Cumberland Gap National Park. Another details Kite Day, a local tradition tracing its roots “way back yonder when,” says Minor. She’s delighted to promote these rural get-togethers, the better to help preserve the small town’s unique way of life. "
