The Robert E. Knight Professional Scholarship was established in 2007 to honor TCEA’s first executive director. Robert Knight first served TCEA as executive secretary and then served as executive director from 1992 to 1998. He had the vision to recognize technology would be more and more important in the teaching and learning of our nation’s students. He was very instrumental in TCEA’s growth, both in terms of membership and influence, and was a driving force in making TCEA a success.
