Educators come from different schools of thought and experience. The incorporation of FIRST compliance will be a great boon to the educational experience, which will directly correlate to the stu- dent's later experience in the industry. These efforts will help educators mold the more efficient employee the industry needs." -Zachery Blackburn, Graphic Arts Instructor, Central Piedmont Community CollelJe "We need to work hard with the new SPI groups to help identify the needs of our current members and get their ideas on how we can grow the membership. Our fu- ture depends on keeping up with technology. New initiatives, like sustainability and the environmental legislation, are just a few to mention. Let's challenge our members to inform us of what they want." -David Nunez, Graphics Specialist/Supervisor, International Paper "For me, as a university educator, I am excited that TEST will offer a FIRST compli- ance process for instructors. This will assure a certain level of competence for instruc- tors and give greater credibility to our student's degrees. It will also help educators develop curricula that meet industry needs and comply with FIRST recommendations." -Dr. E.
