Continuing David Vyorst’s Legacy: Recognizing the Next Generation of Open Internet Advocates

April Froncek
By April FroncekManaging Editor

Last week we shared the sad news that David Vyorst, the Executive Director of the ISOC-DC chapter and an instrumental part of the North American Internet community, passed away.

The DC Chapter and the Internet Society are jointly establishing a fellowship award in David’s name. The fellowship will be awarded to a young person in a US-based chapter who has an innovative project or initiative for making a chapter more effective in advancing the values of a free and open Internet accessible by everyone.

You can visit the DC Chapter’s website to make a donation in David’s memory.
