David Everitt of Nerds On Site is excited for this opportunity.
“The Revenge of the Nerds movies have a bit of a cult following among the Nerds on our team worldwide.\” he said. \”Our corporate leadership team has talked about finding a way to recognize the actors and characters of those movies but we didn’t know where to begin. Now with the festival in town we are thrilled to be able to make this actually happen. We are planning to have a lot of our North American Nerds come in for this event and we couldn’t be happier to be presenting this award to Mr. Armstrong.\”
