Technology Students to Donate Computer Lab

November 15, 2005
The Montgomery County Students Information Technology Foundation, Inc. (MCSITF) has reconditioned and will donate a computer lab--consisting of six computers with operating systems, monitors, keyboards, mice, and two printers--for use by a deserving nonprofit organization in Montgomery County. This project provides an opportunity for MCSITF students to put into practice their computer skills and also earn community service hours, while developing a deeper appreciation for the concepts of charity and community involvement.

MCSITF is a nonprofit organization established cooperatively by the Montgomery County business and professional community and Montgomery County Public Schools. It provides a unique method of hands-on training for high school students to earn CompTIA computer certifications that will prepare them for higher educational opportunities or direct entry into the information technology job market.
