Kingsley Meyer, Director of Campus Computing and Networking at the University of Rio Grande, was recognized as a Broadband Hero at Connect Ohio's December 2010 Technical Association Meeting.
Meyer helped establish the University of Rio Grande’s first Internet connection and email system. Today, the university has more than 30 buildings with fiber connections and over 30 public Wi-Fi hotspots. He was influential in bringing AT&T’s DSL to the entire Rio Grande community, including area schools and businesses, and was involved in the creation of a Community Computing Center where he taught classes and installed Wi-Fi equipment in area homes, women’s shelters and churches.
Connect Ohio thanks Mr. Kingsley Meyer for his past and future technological advances to the southeastern Ohio community.
