FORT RUCKER, Ala. – The U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory recently donated to Geneva County Schools, Geneva, Ala. a combination of 50 laptop and desktop computers and two desktop scanners that rotated out of service at the Laboratory.
The surplus equipment will enhance the capabilities of the GCS technology department, which strives to deliver a technologically rich environment that provides students with all available opportunities to excel in an increasingly technologically driven world.
"These computers will be great assets to our classrooms as many of the current computers are outdated or have limited storage capacity," said Amber Brouillard, GCS instructional technology specialist. "We are thankful to USAARL and appreciate their willingness to donate these computers and scanners that are no longer needed by their organization." The computers only require the installation of hard drives to be ready for use.
"Through partnerships like this one, the Laboratory can facilitate the educational and technological needs of local schools, and nurture the study of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by students in our community," stated Dr. Lori St. Onge, USAARL research administration manager.
The donation was made through an Educational Partnership Agreement under which government Laboratories are authorized to donate to educational institutions excess research and computer equipment.
