Computer tablets donated to Tavares Middle School


Tablet donationTAVARESA 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 Patti Mosteller.


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 to learn more or to make a contribution.
