FALL RIVER — William Milot, who is Director of Technology for the Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Fall River, was  named by the Consortium for School Networking or CoSN to its Volunteer Hall of Fame.  His induction took place March 21, 2014 at the CoSN conference in Washington, DC.

Milot, who resides in Taunton, was recognized for his service on the board of the Massachusetts Education Technology Administrators Association (METAA), which is a local affiliate of CoSN.  For the past two years he has served as co-chair for the METAA CTO Clinic, an annual event that is designed to meet the diverse and challenging needs of the educational technology administrator.  Through a combination of local and national speakers and vendors, technology administrators use this event to gather information that will directly impact their technology implementation decisions in their districts.

CoSn is a leading professional association for district technology leaders, serving over nine million students in school districts nationwide.  The organization annually honors volunteers who have made exceptional contributions with induction into its Volunteer Hall of Fame.  Inductees to the CoSn Volunteer Hall of Fame include volunteers from committees, advisory councils, task forces, and state chapters across the country.

Milot said, “I am highly honored to be selected into the CoSn Hall of Fame.  It is a privilege to work with our Catholic schools in the Diocese of Fall River, and to join our efforts with others in the CoSn and METAA organizations for the purpose of advocating for and supporting the vision, policies, practices, and funding for historical, current, and cutting edge technology to within all aspects of teaching, learning, and professional productivity.”

Fall River Diocesan School Superintendent Dr. Michael Griffin noted, “Mr. Milot has provided exceptional leadership for nearly twenty years as Technology Director for our diocesan schools.  His efforts have inspired and guided many successful technology initiatives, including recent steps by many of our schools to incorporate 1-1 IPad initiatives and other technological advances”.
