— The Treatment and Learning Centers of Rockville, Maryland wins free hosting services and a chance to compete for the $5,000 ServInt Sextant Award Grand Prize —

ServInt, a pioneering provider of managed cloud hosting for enterprises worldwide, today named The Treatment and Learning Centers (TLC) as the second quarterly finalist for the inaugural ServInt Sextant Award. The Award recognizes ServInt customers who are making the most profound community impact with their Internet-based enterprises.

Each quarter, a finalist for the $5,000 ServInt Sextant Award is chosen from among ServInt’s customers. These finalists are given three free months of hosting services to recognize the positive difference their web-based enterprises make in their community. In December 2012, all ServInt customers will be given the chance to vote to choose the organization that they believe best embodies the Award’s values.

The ServInt Sextant Award’s values mirror those found in ServInt’s own core values:

Create possibility … for yourself, for the customer and for the Company. ServInt empowers its employees to create possibility every day.

Invite challenge. Never sit still. Embrace the new, the unknown. Look for challenges that can be overcome to create better products and a better customer experience.

Better yourself and the next guy. Always strive for improvement. Pursue new knowledge, advance relationships and embrace change.

Be open to most everything and everyone. From open doors to open minds, welcome the input of others.

ServInt Chief Operating Officer Christian Dawson explained the purpose behind the ServInt Sextant Award, saying, “There’s a reason why this award is named after a trusted technology that has helped humankind find its true course for nearly a thousand years. In a sense, we’re looking for the ServInt customers who show all of us the way toward a better tomorrow, through the use of the Internet and our hosting technology.”

Dawson added, “TLC is a fantastic organization. They help more than 2,200 disabled persons every year, supporting them and helping them achieve their goals. TLC is a model for the good that can come from creating possibility and helping your fellow man.”

Reacting to the news of the award, TLC Executive Director Patricia Ritter, Ph.D. said, “We are very pleased to be nominated as a quarter finalist for the ServInt Sextant Award, which recognizes our contribution to the community in serving individuals with disabilities.”
