Hi Terry, Just an FYI... sharing this link on solving the same problem you are experiencing in rural America. Perhaps an opportunity for partnerships? https://www.technologyreview.com/s/525951/facebooks-drones-will-battle-googles-balloons-to-spread-internet-access/
I think this is an emerging area and ripe for innovation. The concept of a personal network (Board of Directors) is interesting because typically a BOD is comprised of individuals with different expertise (law, finance, etc.). You can apply the same concept to students who may need advisor for academic counseling or non-academic concerns (motivation, relationships, financial, etc.) - the personal network is a holistic approach to caring for the whole person/student.
