Louisville, KY - Thanks to grants from AT&T and ConnectKentucky’s Computers 4 Kids (C4K) program, the Louisville Central Community Centers (LCCC) unveiled a new education center Wednesday equipped with dozens of computers.
The center, located at 1300 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd. in Louisville, is establishing a computer lab as part an interactive, web-based educational initiative for students living in the economically disadvantaged area.
“ConnectKentucky’s Computers 4 Kids program continues to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged youth who are without home access to Internet-ready computers and the life-changing impact technology access provides our youth,” said
ConnectKentucky Executive Director René True. “With the generous support from the AT&T Foundation, we are happy to be a small, but important part of the opening of Louisville Central Community Centers’ new education center.”
"Access to technology is critical to the success of children and families, so LCCC is delighted to have the support of AT&T and ConnectKentucky to strengthen our capacity to serve Louisville's most economically disadvantaged," said LCCC President and CEO
Sam Watkins, Jr.
“Contributing to the development of the future leaders of our Commonwealth is the best investment any company can make,” said Hank Mangeot, AT&T regional manager for external affairs. “We applaud the work of LCCC to make sure that students have access
to the technology that is so critical to the way we communicate and the way we learn in the twenty-first century.”
