EWF Volunteers

On October 27th an outstanding group of volunteers from the Executive Women's Forum visited Foothills Family Resource Center, North Canyon High School, and Pinnacle High School to share information about Internet safety and careers in cybersecurity. They reminded us all to "Stop. Think. Connect." while we are online so we can be safe and positive digital citizens. Thank you to the EWF for donating their time and talents to our students!
