ODI Student Stars and Scholars Program
Student Stars serve as ambassadors for One Day Immersion and are an integral and essential part of the day. The students are recommended by faculty and tasked with assisting in all the moving parts of the event to make sure that all attendees have an optimal experience. We currently have a wonderfully diverse mix of students representing Northern Virginia Community College, Pace University, and New York University. Student Stars are currently sponsored by The Cable Center’s DeSorrento Grant, and technology industry executive, Zenita Henderson, SCTE/ISBE.
