"Repair It Forward" makes local news

David Hopkins and his A+ IT students were the focus of a local news story on KOMU. Watch video footage and read about their new business venture, "Repair It Forward" as they utilize their classroom tech skills and give back to the community as well. As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, Hopkins and his team of students are authorized to install genuine Microsoft software into all the computers they repair. The benefits of refurbishing old computers for the community are two-fold: families get a working unit and a natural reduction of environmental e-waste.
Current recipients of the refurbished PC's have been The Islamic School, and 27 families selected through Voluntary Action Center.

For more information about the program, contact David Hopkins at dhopkins@columbia.k12.mo.us.
