University donates new computers to school
TUSKEGEE, Ala. (November 20, 2012) — St. Joseph Catholic School in Tuskegee, Ala. received eight new computers from the university. The small private school had several computers for classroom use, but many of the machines were outdated and beyond repair. After hearing about St. Joseph’s need, the university’s office of campus technology became involved and donated replacement computers.
“It will open the doors for the kids to be exposed to new computers,” said the school’s principal, Marjorie Reese about the donation, “This will really motivate them more now.”
Fred Judkins, Tuskegee’s chief information officer, helped deliver the computers to St. Joseph Tuesday afternoon. He said it was vital for the university to have an on-going relationship with the school.
“It’s important to be involved in our community. It’s not that we just want to be involved with the university and the city. We want to make sure that we have a partnership,” Judkins said.
