Stevens-Henager College today responded to the needs of Springville High School by donating 20 HP620 laptops to replace the school’s laptops that were destroyed in a fire last month. The high school will use the computers for a new mobile computer lab to serve multiple classrooms.
Kenneth Plant, regional director of Stevens-Henager’s southern region, will present the laptops at an assembly, held Friday, April 6 at 9 a.m. at Springville High School, located at 1205 E. 900 S. in Springville. Firefighters who battled the blaze will participate in the event, and Plant and representatives of the Springville High School and Nebo School District will be on hand to answer questions following the presentation.
When an electrical fire erupted at Springville High School in the early morning of March 14, the school’s entire computer lab burned, leaving students without the much needed technological resources to complete the school year. Stevens-Henager College reached out to Springville High School the following day with an offer to replace all 20 laptops.
“At Stevens-Henager College, we understand the role technology plays in education for students at all levels, and we’re dedicated to helping other local educational institutions like Springville High School succeed,” said Kenneth Plant, regional director of Stevens-Henager College. “We take this commitment seriously and when we became aware of the situation at Springville High, we knew we needed to respond.”
“We are honored and grateful to Stevens-Henager College for understanding our crisis and providing a generous solution so quickly,” said Lana Hiskey, Public Information Officer for Nebo School District. “Through their donation, we are able to continue our technology education, which means a better learning experience for each student at Springville High.”
