Laptops for Students

We recently loaned several laptops acquired through grant money to St Dominic and St Mary schools for the use of their students during the final portion of the school year. The laptops were acquired through generous grants from Western Kansas Community Foundation and The Finnup Foundation.

Nicole Hahn with Greater Garden City did a great story on it.
