Project Bike Tech is excited to announce the appointment of Calvin Jones of Park Tool Co and Leigh Keatts of Quality Bicycle Products to its Board of Directors. These new additions highlight the company's dedication to advancing its mission and expanding its influence in bicycle STEAM and Career and Technical Education.

"We are thrilled to welcome Calvin and Leigh to our Board of Directors," said Jeff Donaldson, Executive Director of Project Bike Tech. "I have worked with both of them in the past and am honored that they are joining us. Their leadership and expertise will be instrumental in driving our mission forward helping us achieve ambitious new benchmarks in our work."

Calvin Jones said "I feel honored to be asked to participate on the PBT Board. Having worked with CEO, Jeff Donaldson, I know great things will be happening. Having worked with young people through NICA and high school biking programs, I want to share my experiences scaled to fit the PBT programs. My goal will be to help find ways to assist those people that help our youth become involved in bicycle technology and bicycling. I want to enable the enablers that allow our country's young find their unique way, their mechanical voice, whatever that may be and wherever that takes them."

Leigh Keatts said, "I'm excited for the opportunity to serve on the board of Project Bike Tech. I believe in the power of the bicycle, and I'm thrilled to contribute my time and expertise towards PBT's mission. Many kids haven't had exposure to bikes and how they can positively change their lives and the environment. PBT seeks to not only change that, but to create more resources for a skilled workforce in a time where our technical workforce is shrinking. What a great mission, and I'm so overjoyed to be a part of it.
