WEST ISHPEMING — A local high school is receiving a generous donation for their computer labs thanks to TruNorth Federal Credit Union. TruNorth is donating twenty–five of their gently–used computers to Westwood High School.
The computers have been refurbished, and will be ready for immediate use. The computers being replaced will have another home as well, stoking a district–wide upgrade.
“Compudyne, our tech support team, is going to put them in the most applicable spots, they will take the computers that they replace, and they will farm them out around the district, too. So as soon as we get them, they’re going to be in front of kids and put to use,” said NICE superintendant Bryan DeAugustine.
“Anything we can do to increase, um, education, literacy in our community is good for the credit union, good for the members, and obviously good for the students,” said Shae Kangas of TruNorth Federal Union.
TruNorth is in the process of moving the computers to NICE Community Schools. Students should be able to use them within the next couple of weeks.
