The National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) recently announced that The LAMP’s own Executive Director and Co-founder, D.C. Vito, won election to its Board of Directors for the 2013-2015 term. Cynthia Lieberman of Cyberwise and Rebecca Reynolds of Rutgers University join Mr. Vito as the group of three new “At Large” additions to the Board of Directors, elected by NAMLE members from a field of qualified candidates.
“I am extremely honored to have been elected to the NAMLE Board of Directors,” says Mr. Vito. “NAMLE is at a pivotal point in its growth as a force for mobilizing media literacy educators, and I look forward to being part of its leadership community. I’m also excited for The LAMP to benefit from increased involvement with NAMLE as it continues to grow its role as New York City’s nonprofit leader in media fluency education for underserved youth, families and educators.”
