[Video/Audio] Technology Pioneer, Hallan, Honored by ECMECC
A local technology pioneer was honored Thursday in Braham. Family, friends, colleagues and legislative leaders gathered at Braham High School to honor East Central Educational Cable Cooperative Director, Steve Hallan, who is retiring after 21 years. Hallan helped get ECMECC off the ground, and says even he is surprised with the success and growth of the co-op.
Hear Hallan’s Comments:
ECMECC brings interactive television to 12 area school districts, as well as Pine Technical College. The Co-op started in 1984, sharing live video and audio signals between six area schools, helping make more interactive classrooms. Commissioner of Education, Alice Seagren, joined the celebration Thursday, appropriately, through video conference.
