On Friday, October 12th, Councilmember Steve Levin cut the ribbon on the new Mac lab at the Juan Morel Campos Secondary School (JMCSS), opening the door to reveal 30 new Apple Macs for the junior high and high school students at the Heyward Street school.
The new technology replaced ten year old computers with such poor functionality, said Principal Eric Fraser, “they would crash when students were in the middle of their assignments.”
Levin used funds from his discretionary capital account to upgrade the lab, saying it was crucial for the students’ futures. “Their education depends on their having access to technology that’s going to serve as the basis for learning and professional development. Giving them this access gives them a head start for college and their future careers.” The Councilmember also funded the purchase of a projector and screen.
To show their appreciation to Levin, the JMCSS students screened a short film of them thanking the legislator, which they prepared, using the new Macs.
“I’m very dedicated to this school,” said Levin. “It serves a lot of kids from the community and I want to make sure it stays strong and vital for many years to come.”
