Thankfully we have plenty of room here at www.d-etoday.org, to feature these Student Standouts and Faculty Endeavors online, and on a much more frequent basis. Check back often as we will continue to update these awesome achievements regularly! And if you have a Student Standout or Faculty Endeavors to share, Email us at: webmaster@d-e.org.
