2012 National Blue Ribbon School Piedmont High School (Piedmont, AL) was the subject of a “Selected Story” that year for its role in bringing broadband Internet access to students and families in the tiny Alabama town (population: just under 5,000). Now Piedmont Superintendent Matt Akin has been singled out in EdWeek’s “2016 Leaders to Learn From” series. Watch Piedmont’s self-produced video, How One School Closed the Digital Divide and Brought Broadband to Town. Read the EdWeek story.
