MARQUETTE, Mi. (WLUC) - It was an unexpected gift, and one that couldn't have come at a better time for local students.
The NICE Community School District received 25 gently used computers after Tru North Federal Credit Union offered the donation themselves. NICE Superintendent, Bryan DeAugustine says the donated computers will most likely be used to update a Westwood High School lab to make sure their current ones are functioning. After the upgrade, the older ones will be distributed around the district.
"I just can't say enough again how much I appreciate the public and private partnership between NICE Community Schools and Tru North Federal Credit Union," DeAugustine said. "It's just a really great thing that they reached out to us and are helping our students."
The computers were previously used by employees of the non-profit financial institution, and are completely refurbished. They'll replace computer models ranging from HP to Dell.
