ATLANTA— With a gift of $50,000 from the Technical College System of Georgia Foundation, the first donation of laptops recently arrived at the 22 technical colleges in Georgia.
COVID-19 has forced an adjustment to educational delivery methods with a greater reliance on distance learning. As such, the need for computers and equipment for students who do not have access to these items is immediate. Working with TCSG IT administration, 140 laptops were ordered and shipped directly to the colleges.
“We appreciate the TCSG Foundation providing these laptop computers,” said Lanier Technical College President Ray Perren. “Technology like this is essential to ensuring our students can fully participate in an online environment. These laptops will allow us to help students stay connected to our digital classroom environment.”
