We are thrilled to announce that Next Generation Academy has partnered with Secure Designs Inc and Gig G 501c3.
Larry Cecchini, President of Secure Designs Inc, was excited for NGA and the unique opportunity to make a powerful, unprecedented, and immediate impact on the next generation of students in East Greensboro. Secure Designs, a Greensboro based high technology company, has been extremely interested in proving the positive effect technology can have on kindergarten and very young elementary school children’s academic performance when combined in the classroom with qualified, passionate teachers.
Larry is also the President of Gig G 501c3, who’s mission is to connect, catalyze and revolutionize our community leveraging high speed internet. Gig G, a recent 2nd place winner of a City of Greensboro SC2 Challenge, will design, develop and build a publicly-owned gigabit speed Fiber Optic Network for local community use and provide incredible fast internet capabilities to our school facilities and students.
Both organisations seek to bring passionate entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, partners and stakeholders together on specific projects like Next Generation Academy to make great things happen.
Our team is looking forward to NGA becoming a proven new paradigm, demonstrating how community citizens lift each other up and demonstrate public and private stewardship.
