Help Us Thank Our Veterans
Laptop computers have become a required piece of equipment, not unlike a pen or notebook. Not all of our students can afford to purchase laptops, however. Five years ago, as part of the initial grant creating the Veteran Success Center, several laptops were purchased to loan to veteran students who could not buy their own. Five years has taken its toll, and those remaining are, well, five years old and incapable of efficiently running today’s updated software. Though we are always “fishing” for new grants, the need for updated equipment is rather urgent. With more and more professors wanting students to have laptops for class work and homework, there is more of a need than ever.
Student trustee and Army veteran, Thomas Berger, initiated this fundraiser, “Laptops for Vets.” He and the rest of us at the Veteran Success Center are looking for your help in raising money to purchase new laptop computers, to be loaned out to student veterans. This will help them with their classwork, homework and overall college experience. Tom’s stated goal is to raise enough money to purchase 25 state-of-the-art laptops to make school easier for all veteran students. We hope you can help us reach this goal.
