TAVARES — A local business and a
community group have responded to the need for more computer access in schools
by donating RCA 7 Voyager computer tablets this month for student use at
Tavares Middle School.
The first donation of
tablets came from the Lake Veterinary Clinic, courtesy of Dr. Felix Pryor and
The second donation was
made through the efforts of Jon Weber and the Experimental Aircraft
Association, Chapter 534, in Leesburg, after a Tavares Middle School teacher
mentioned the need to her husband, who is a member of the association.
“She told him how great
it would be if every student had a simple device,” said Principal Trella Mott.
“The next thing I know, computers start showing up!”
So far, 28 tablets have
been received and 20 more are on order and coming soon.
As we seek to expand
the use of technology in our schools to help our students become College and
Career Ready, we greatly appreciate community support through donations such as
these. In fact, Lake County Schools has launched a C2 Ready Technology Campaign
specifically for this purpose. Click here
