Blythe Scherrer is the primary information architect of the Honors Program. Because Honors students come from all  schools and colleges, Honors requires a bigger and more complex 'data and web footprint' at Syracuse.  Her job is ensure that all the processes and systems that comprise the Honors 'digital footprint' run smoothly, that students can access the information they need, and that information about students is always available to the Honors advisors.  In addition to supporting the technology needs of the program, Blythe serves as a capstone coordinator and advising resource for students from the iSchool or duals, or any student who wants to incorporate technology into their Honors Capstone.

A Seattle native, Blythe graduated with a bachelor's degree in Marine Zoology from the University of Washington in 1999, but became obsessed with developing a database and website to showcase her Honors Thesis project, so decided to embark on a career in information management instead.

She earned her Master's Degree in Information Management from the iSchool at Syracuse University in 2015.  Blythe also teaches database development and design (IST 359) at the iSchool.
