Repair It Forward strikes again!

David Hopkins' A+IT Essentials students are at it again. Their computer refurbishing business, Repair It Forward was contacted by Brooke Eskridge, Community Services Program Manager of Central Missouri Community Action (CMCA) about acquiring 20  computers. The Mission of CMCA is to help fight poverty in America.  Ms. Eskridge said the computers will be distributed to clients in the Missouri Work Assistance(MWA) program for use in job search and training in their homes. Darin Preis, Executive Director of CMCA was also on hand for the event. Mr. Preis is  a Columbia Public School Board of Education member and a strong proponent of  the career center.
