The Give Back Committee is always up for a 5K or giving to those in need, and our latest donation was no exception. Our 2011 computer lab installation was such a success, that we decided to continue the tradition and supply a local school with brand new laptop computers. The 10 ThinkPads will help broaden the post-high school horizons of the teens that attend Gateway School in Orlando.
With previous course offerings of just math, reading and writing, the school has recently expanded, adding a health academy to their curriculum.
A local night shift nurse teaches the students various skills in the healthcare industry and now, with the aid of these new laptops, she will be able to enhance their learning experience and capacity by exposing them to various healthcare-related technology.
