Repair it Forward wins Mayor's Climate Protection Agreement Award

Congratulations to Columbia Area Career Center's Repair It Forward program for winning the inaugural Mayor's Climate Protection Agreement award in Innovative Best Practices. According to Mayor Bob McDavid, "We established the MCPA award program to recognize excellence in sustainable practices demonstrated by local businesses and organizations who promote a culture of environmental responsibility."
A+IT Instructor David Hopkins and his students refurbish donated computers and donate them to local organizations and individuals in need of a working computer thus reducing the e-waste that would end up in a landfill.

The team was awarded a glass plaque created by local artist Susan Taylor Glasgow.
