March is Women’s History Month!


CHES student video screen shot detail

The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network, Inc. (viNGN) would like to take the time to appreciate the contributions of women throughout history this Women’s History Month (March) and always. It is absolutely true that women have proven themselves to be capable, dedicated and conscientious contributors to society since the beginning of recorded fact.

The Computing in the Core coalition states that its Hour of Code initiative, which has touched millions around the world in 170 countries,  was inspired by computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

In combination with the month of March being Virgin Islands History Month, we share with you this YouTube video by the students at the Charles H. Emanuel School on St. Croix, “Virgin Islands Women Making History” –

“In honor of Virgin Islands History Month & Women’s History month, the CHES Video Production Team of students from Charles H. Emanuel Elementary School videotaped interviews of five Virgin Islands women who were first in their fields.”
