CINCINNATI, OH — Apr. 26th, 2011 — Randy Wilhelm, CEO of Cincinnati-based netTrekker, was selected for The Consortium for School Networking’s (CoSN) Board of Directors for the second consecutive term. The 2011-2012 Board comprises 18 private and public sector education technology leaders from across the country. Board members serve a three-year term.

CoSN is the premier professional association for school, district and educational service agency technology leaders. CoSN is committed to providing the leadership, community and advocacy tools essential for the success of these leaders. The mission of CoSN is to empower K-12 district technology leaders to use technology strategically for the improvement of teaching and learning.

Wilhelm passionately believes that students must be the ultimate and natural focus of education. A driven leader fostering dialogue, opportunity and innovation in education, Wilhelm is the CEO and co-founder of netTrekker, a premier provider of digital K-12 educational resources and tools.

"I am honored to be selected to the Board and be an advocate for technology’s integral role in advancing 21st century learning," said Wilhelm. "When used effectively, technology enables schools to provide equitable, personalized learning experiences for all students and prepare them for their future careers."

Wilhelm’s commitment to the education community extends to several youth-related not-for-profit and for-profit boards and committees that serve children and education nationally and in the local Cincinnati-area, including the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP), The Partnership for 21st Century Skills, Teen Challenge Cincinnati, and Xavier University’s Williams College of Business. Wilhelm has also developed a partnership between netTrekker and Princeton High School in Sharonville, Ohio. Each week Wilhelm and numerous netTrekker employees ride a bus to Princeton to mentor students for the school’s Creating Opportunities for Relationship Enrichment, or CORE, program.
