As COVID-19 variants might once again be forcing us to be apart, it is becoming increasingly imperative that the information technology keeping us connected works properly. Keeping technology in working order is exactly what Midland College Computer Information Technology students are doing this semester.
Earlier this month 20 students in MC’s PC Hardware class utilized a $10,000 donation of computers from Mark Knox Flowers.
“This generous donation is one of the largest our department has ever seen,“ said Joseph Bontke, MC professor, Information Technology. “We can do so much hands-on learning with this donation. We will be opening the computers, identifying the parts and components inside, and as the class progresses, we will keep going back to this donation to learn new things.” The donation from Mark Knox Flowers includes 29 computers, four printers, and one laptop.
“We recently upgraded our computers, so I reached out to the Computer Information Technology Department at MC to see if they could use the old ones, and it turned out they could,” said Tom Williams, manager of Mark Knox Flowers. “We like to recycle as much as we can. Knowing these computers can be used for teaching purposes is a great feeling.”
