FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 7, 2007
An Indiana University School of Informatics senior is among only 15 college students from around the world chosen to participate in the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Global Summit in Seattle.
Jeff Gehlhausen is one of three students from the United States to attend the March 10-14 summit. Microsoft MVPs are developers who have strong ties to Microsoft and demonstrate their commitment and excellence on projects and online technical sites.
Gehlhausen is a Microsoft Student Partner technical representative to IU. In that role, he supports Microsoft products, events and promotions on the Bloomington campus, and he also encourages IU students and faculty to become involved in information technology activities.
"I was surprised to learn I was selected to attend the summit, and it's truly an honor," said Gehlhausen, a native of Dale, Ind. "It also is a tremendous opportunity to meet with peers from around the globe and learn about their work and activities."
Gehlhausen will earn a bachelor's degree in informatics this summer. He plans to pursue graduate work at the IU School of Informatics.
