Renewed Technology Connects With Kids

Laptops being presented.

Kalapuya student Nick Stonelake accepts a laptop from Eugene Mayor Lucy Vinis. The Mayor was invited by the Oregon Black Education Foundation and NextStep Recycling to help hand out refurbished laptops to KHS students.

Laptop computers that have been refurbished and given new life are being welcomed in the homes of 10 Kalapuya High School students.

None of the students had access to a computer at home. They were part of a writing assignment asking how a computer would help them achieve their dreams.

The Oregon Black Education Foundation, led by state senator James Manning – a longtime KHS supporter – arranged for the students to receive the born-again laptops from NextStep Recycling.

The Kalapuya students were happily surprised with the laptops at a school assembly.
