VFH Board Member Rita Roy is a “serial entrepreneur” in Northern Virginia who has started two technology companies in the education and health care sectors.
Rita first got to know VFH at a Virginia Folklife event that inspired her to learn more. Recently, she sat down with Elliot Majerczyk in our radio studio and shared her thoughts on bringing the humanities into the 21st century.
The humanities are important in everything we do and everything that we are.
VFH has made such an amazing investment in people, time, energy, and equipment to bring the humanities into the 21st century…Their partnership with Google, the Encyclopedia Virginia…the Founding Fathers project… all the amazing things they’re doing with technology are really inspiring.
The humanities give us a reason for living. Without the humanities, what are we as people?
