"Dr. Mary Radnofsky has made many contributions
to the children and schools of the Alexandria community through
her Socrates Institute programs…She has helped create an environment
of excitement and enthusiasm for learning among all students, regardless
of their backgrounds or handicapping conditions."
- Brian J. Moran
Delegate, State Legislature of
the Commonwealth of Virginia
It is with great pleasure that
I write this letter of endorsement for the innovative and ethical
work of The Socrates Institute and more specifically Dr. Mary Radnofsky.
As a children's author I have worked with The Socrates Institute
and the creation of educational curricula for Pre K thru 12th grade.
The work produced by Dr. Radnofsky was creative, positive, compassionate
and exacting in the lessons of fair play and kindness as tools to
help our children understand how their actions impact others.
It is no surprise to learn that Dr. Radnofsky would endeavor to
affect a broader market and educate kids to the dangers of cybercrime.
She has taken complete responsibility by her actions and the creation
of the CyberEthics Project to help our children learn ethics and
trust as tools for successful, productive lives. More than ever
our society needs to support her efforts as we all gain in a brighter

"I have a great deal of respect
and admiration for Dr. Mary Radnofsky… We can all benefit from such
innovative programs for children as she has devised, and, more important,
from reaching out to support each other, as she has encouraged both
schools and businesses to do."
- Kerry Donley
Former Mayor of Alexandria
"As a "first-responder" to technical
catastrophes, we see every week the damage and waste that are associated
with the unethical propagation of viruses and other exploits.… That
is why we are so supportive of the CyberEthics Project at the Socrates
Institute. While we expend our efforts preventing and resolving
problems one client at a time, Mary Radnofsky proposes a program
that will combat this unethical behavior before it becomes a problem.
By teaching students how to use the Internet and its resources responsibly
and ethically, the CyberEthics Project can have a profound social
impact across several generations of technology users."

The Socrates Institute's CyberEthics
Project is the best educational program I have seen attempting to
teach the ethics, safety, and security measures needed regarding
Internet and other technological advances. Our peace of mind hinges
on the success of such programs, and I would like to see this project
meet its goals.

"The CyberEthics Project you have
outlined for lower, middle, and high school students could not come
at a better time….Your institute’s project can be a strong force
in teaching youth the ethical and proper way to acquire and use
that digital information."
Patrick M. O'Brien,
Director of Libraries, City of Alexandria.
"Dr. Mary Radnofsky might not
be what most think of as the "typical" cybercrime fighter. She doesn’t
spend her days designing firewalls, or puzzling out ever-more-sophisticated
data-encryption strategies. But she may soon be at the forefront
of the battle, nonetheless."
