Walt Levering - Past SVTC Board Member

  

It was with great sadness that we learned that our former board member (2004-2008), Walt Levering, passed away on April 23rd.  Walt was not just very involved with the SVTC over the years (here pictured at last year's Tech Nite), but also with other Virginia technology councils and the Virginia Technology Alliance (VTA). He was a techie!!!  We truly valued his contributions and his personality. He was a wordsmith without compare -- I think his favorite word must have been "pithy"! We will miss him greatly and our thoughts are with his family during this sad time.
