The story of iLAB + Ball State truly stems from a place of deep respect and mutual admiration. iLAB CEO, Jethro Lloyd, and BSU Associate Professor, Dr. Becky Hammons, Becky was the second person Jethro met Becky was one of the first industry professional to truly speak about the importance of quality in software; a real thought leader. The partnership was finally able to come to fruition due to Ball State University having the foresight to understand that future of their students’ success relied heavily on the support of employers.
