Walker Valley High School students recently applied their technology-savvy skills to a real-life situation at North Lee Elementary.

Students in Walker Valley’s ‘Networking and Cabling’ class were a great help as North Lee worked to replace 73 outdated computers throughout the buildings.

The ‘technology refreshment’ program in Bradley County helps to annually keep efficient computer equipment in each school. The computers removed from North Lee were machines that ranged in age from 8 to 12 years old.

The Walker Valley students were guided by Sharon Prohaska, technology coach for North Lee and Taylor Elementary, and Alan Morris, technology teacher from Walker Valley High School.

The students removed all of the outdated machines, unpacked and assembled all of the new computers, and installed and cabled all of the computers in classrooms and the computer lab.

Their assistance was greatly appreciated by the North Lee community.
