Arizona’s 50 Year Transformations by quotes

Arizona’s  50 Year Transformations  Arizona is growing, but this is not news to anyone.

Yesterday it really hit home. Over the past 20 years I have had numerous meetings at the Salt River Project’s modest, single story administration building in a desert setting on Project Drive. Yesterday I could hardly find it within the massive complex of hi-rise buildings. Sitting I the familiar lobby I thought about Arizona’s real transformations.  

In the first half of the 1990’s it was hydraulic innovations that delivered water from the massive dams through SRP canals that created our agricultural economy.  The second half of the 1990’s was driven by a company about one mile west of SRP on Washington Street: Goettl Air Conditioning. They introduced evaporative coolers and then air conditioners that transformed Arizona’s economy once again.  

So here we sit in the early 21st century, wondering where we go next. What innovation in infrastructure will transform Arizona once again? We are a unique state in that we are one of the few that is fresh and young, and has a history of astounding growth and transformation. Incrementalism will not serve Arizona well in the next couple of decades. Our governance, education and business communities have a sense of this need to build a third great infrastructure. We have good success with broad band telecommunications which started its surge ten years ago. With a successful Broadband Authority strategy Arizona will complete its rural rollout in a few years.  

But we need an innovation much more powerful and unique, to match the Arizona pioneers of the past century. And to no surprise to prior readers of this blog — that transformation will be the eLearning system adoption within all Arizona K-12 classrooms statewide.   

Cheers!
