Wittliff Cutter is pleased to announce that Partner Karen Vladeck has been appointed as a Board Member of Code2College. Code2College is a non-profit origination based in Austin, TX whose mission is to increase the number of minority and low-income high school students who enter and excel in STEM undergraduate majors and careers. By partnering with a wide-range of companies in Central Texas, Code2College places local high school students in a multi-year, career prep and college access program that leverages local volunteer technical talent to teach coding and web development skills to traditionally underrepresented students.
“Code2College focuses on pairing Austin’s rapidly growing technology community with a population that rarely has access to such opportunities,” said Ms. Vladeck. “It also gives volunteers the opportunity to connect with high school students who want to better themselves and learn skills that they could not otherwise acquire in a traditional academic setting. I am thrilled to be joining the board of such an amazing organization and to assist in helping the organization reach even more students.”
