In memory of Cayle Bywater
Before grad student Cayle Bywater (BBA ’02) disappeared early last year she started a project to benefit Nuci’s Space, a musicians’ resource and support center where she volunteered in Athens. She hoped that the large-scale database she was compiling would significantly increase the efficiency and range of the center’s rehearsal room reservation system.
After Bywayter was found dead Jan. 11, 2008, her classmates in the master of Internet technology program at the Gwinnett campus decided to continue the project in her honor. Bywater’s endeavor became a final project for five of her classmates. The new system, which they named the Cayle Project, is an internal web application that assists staff members with practice room and equipment reservations, as well as with vital customer reporting data. As of May 2009, the database is an integral part of business at Nuci’s Space.
