Karen Bridgeman, Information International Associates, Oak Ridge, TN

Information International Associates, Inc., is a woman-owned, small business headquartered in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. We provide information management, systems, and technology services to government, academia, the private sector, and international entities. Among our corporate values is giving back to our communities. We learned about this project through Oak Ridge Breakfast Rotary Club, which provides dictionaries to all the third-graders in Anderson County schools and coordinates the efforts of several other Rotary clubs to cover other schools in our area. Learning that there was no club in Scott County to cover either the Scott County or Oneida City schools, we wanted to help start the Dictionary Project effort there. This is a wonderful project, helping business people with a heart for service channel their efforts into something truly worthwhile.
