My name is Mitchell Tuckness and I am the IT Administrator for Lea County Communication Authority.
I have over 30 years of computer, networking and IT related management experience.
My Mission / Purpose is that the Office of Information Technology will provide the highest quality technology-based services, in the most cost-effective manner, to facilitate the LCCA mission as it applies to management, teaching, learning, and community service.
To meet this mission I will:
Provide effective technology support for audio / visual, computer, multimedia, voice, video, security, networking and web based applications and services.
Promote and facilitate the effective integration of technology into the basic mission of the Center through planning, programming, training, consulting, and other support activities.
Develop, enhance, and manage the Center's enterprise networks to provide high speed, transparent, and highly functional connectivity among all information resources.
Develop and maintain highly effective, reliable, secure, and innovative information systems to support instructional and administrative functions.
Facilitate the collection, storage, security and integrity of electronic data while ensuring appropriate access.
Promote new uses of information technology within the Center through the support for exploratory and innovative applications.
Provide leadership for effective strategic and tactical planning in the use of technology.
Provide fast & reliable access to all information systems.
I also do the Counties Addressing and GIS data management. This includes adding new roads, making sure that addresses have the correct information and new ones are entered correctly so that dispatchers and emergency responders can locate callers in an emergency.
