Under the team leadership of Youth Vice Chairs David Johnson and Chris Roberts (a rising NWHS Soph & Senior), Northwest High Schools repurposed 452 PIV computers during the first week of their summer program. Brian Kelley’s new super slip stream CD and a team of 7 guys and 5 gals worked hard to make the first week a success.
The students volunteers also had time to tape several financial literacy videos for the Financial Connects website and finished up on Thursday (since July 3rd is a holiday). This was an outstanding team effort and Northwest repurposed these computers for nonprofits, their “sister” elementary school, two other high schools, and to ensure their entire incoming freshman class would have a computer at the beginning of the school year. And that’s community service!
This week marks the start of Net Literacy’s second and third summer program. Net Literacy is teaching elementary school students about Internet safety at the YMCA and began a repurposing program at Northwest. Next week, a dozen students from five high schools will spend a month learning how to build a website using Dreamweaver and create the Financial Connects website.
Congratulations goes to the Northwest High School Net Literacy chapter for establishing a new world computer repurposing record at Net Literacy refurbishing 452 computers in a four day week!
