Kuhn Wins Award December 29, 2016

Terry Kuhn was recently awarded the 2016 North Carolina Governor's Award for Excellence. Kuhn is the son of Russell and Elaine Kuhn of Mount Joy and a Manheim Central High School graduate.

Kuhn is an employee of the battleship U.S.S. North Carolina, having served with distinction in each position he has occupied. His work has led to the creation of a one-of-a-kind Wi-Fi network onboard the U.S.S. North Carolina.

Kuhn began working on the Wi-Fi project in order to meet the needs of both visitors and employees. The existence of a Wi-Fi network onboard the battleship increases the capacity of the memorial to deliver educational materials to teachers and students, as well as provides a means of communication to even the most remote areas of the ship in the event of an emergency. In addition, the onboard Wi-Fi network will allow for future revenue opportunities from marketing.

Kuhn formed a team comprised of two North Carolina-based IT companies, staff, and volunteers to accomplish the task of outfitting the vintage battleship with modern Wi-Fi capabilities. Kuhn and his team installed more than 8,000 feet of cable to accommodate more than 60 Wi-Fi access points located throughout the battleship. Kuhn had to find solutions to the problems associated with running cable through very tight and remote shipboard spaces while preserving the battleship's historic appearance.

As a result, the U.S.S. North Carolina is now the first historic naval ship in the world to provide Wi-Fi connectivity to visitors.
