Forest City Adventist School was the proud recipient of 36 flat screen computers, desks, and chairs, donated and installed by Adventist University's Department of Information Technology (IT) on Feb. 28, 2012.
The gift came after the University decided to disassemble its computer lab, since laptops are now a requirement for all students. Not wanting the three-year-old computers to go to waste, IT researched the technology needs of local Adventist schools and selected Forest City to receive the equipment.
“It was an answer to a prayer I didn’t even dare pray,” Forest City Principal Alipia Gonzalez says. “The computers we had before didn’t even have CD slots because they didn’t make CDs when those computers were made.”
The new computers now reside in classrooms, on teachers’ desks, and in the library computer lab, where students are already using them for English and math practice activities.
