Community Computer Lab Opens in Thomasville

THOMASVILLE, N.C. -- Students in Thomasville are getting some much needed help with homework from a new computer lab. The Thomasville United Computer Center opened this week equipped with 14 computers. Maya Walker, a junior at Thomasville High School, took advantage of the community's new computer lab the day it opened. "I'm here to work on a class project for my AP biology class," said Walker. She doesn't have a computer at home. "It really helps me have access to a computer, and now I can work on my project outside of the school,” said Walker. The lab came together through a partnership between the school system and Unity Methodist Church. "Our church's vision is to build a community of unity in Christ, so we really want to be connected to our community and be a part of it," said Rev. Rob Hutchinson. Other organizations from the community are also getting involved. The Thomasville Police Department is donating seized computers. Read more and view video
