Dscoop, Industry Mourn Loss of Rod Key
Hewlett-Packard, Document Systems Foundation (EDSF) and Arizona State University have established the Rod Key Memorial Scholarship, which will benefit students of the Arizona State University Graphic Communications Program. Rod’s family has asked that all donations be made to the scholarship fund in lieu of flowers.
Jan Riecher, vice president and general manager, Americas Graphics Solutions Business, HP, noted: “In addition to what Rod brought to the industry in his various leadership positions and his contributions as an advisory board member at Dscoop, he was also passionate about education. Rod was an advisor for Arizona State University’s graphic information technology program, which offers students a ‘creative, technological and managerial understanding of graphic communication technology in areas such as Web, print, photography and multimedia.’ As such, we felt that a scholarship in his name at ASU was the most meaningful way to remember him.”
Brenda Kai, EDSF executive director added that, “We are proud to administer this scholarship in honor of one of the industry’s talented leaders. Rod’s legacy will truly live on in the next generation through this scholarship.” The Rod Key Memorial Scholarship will be awarded in July 2014 to an outstanding full-time ASU student committed to pursuing a career in the document management and graphic communications marketplace.
