WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - Mar 18, 2014) - Mountain America Credit Union recently partnered with Clark County School District in Dubois, Idaho, to donate 25 computers and flat panel monitors for student use. Mountain America has been devoted to serving its community partners and is excited about this new relationship with Clark County School District.
Susie Shifflett, director of technology for Clark County School District, recently approached Alex Barker, senior vice president of information technology at Mountain America, about a possible donation. "At Mountain America, contributing to the communities in which we operate is central to who we are. That's why when I received a call from Susie, asking whether or not we could donate a computer or two for their students to use, we jumped at the chance," said Barker.
"We feel that contributing to the education of the children of Clark County is a great cause so instead of one or two, we donated 25 well-maintained PCs and flat-panel monitors. Mountain America phases out PCs after about three or four years, and we typically donate them to groups like Clark County School District, where they will be put to good use," noted Barker.
Mountain America strives to create win-win opportunities for everyone involved. Mountain America is pleased the students will be able to utilize the donated equipment for many years to come.
