Rep. Prince Chestnut was appointed to the Alabama Supercomputer Authority by the Speaker of the House last week.

The ASA is a state-funded corporation formed for the purpose of planning, acquiring, developing, administering and operating a statewide supercomputer and related telecommunication systems.

ASA provides High Performance Computing services free of charge to faculty, staff, and enrolled students of public schools, colleges, and universities in Alabama. This allows universities to create a trained workforce with the skills needed for jobs in engineering, science, mathematics, aerospace, and medical research fields.

Chestnut said that ASA has already partnered with Selma-Dallas County Library during the pandemic to ensure Internet service for our children at the library.  “It’s an honor to once again be entrusted by legislative leadership to assume a role that will help me help the Black Belt and the entire State,” Chestnut said.
