Almost exactly a year after NEC donated a computer lab for high school students at Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School, the company did the same thing for the school’s younger grades.
On Thursday, Sept. 14, Rangel middle school students celebrated their new space along with officials from NEC and the Young Women’s Preparatory Network.
Students Hannah Wesley and Etana King talked about how the new computers and refreshed lab space will improve their studies during the dedication ceremony. Also speaking were Lynn McBee, CEO of the Young Women’s Preparatory Network; Juan Fontanes, Chief Information Officer of NEC; and Principal Lisa Curry.
A ribbon-cutting in the new computer lab was followed by a demonstration by the Rangel robotics team.
