To the Editor:

The new Learning Center at South Fork High School, a 32-station modern computer lab, is off to a fantastic start. It is a tremendous addition to our school and very exciting to see the teachers bringing classes in for whole group instruction and research. So many people participated in making this facility possible that it would be difficult to name them all in this space.

Of course the efforts of the Southern Humboldt Schools Foundation and the Garberville Rotary Club made the purchase of this equipment possible. Every penny, and then some, of the $45,000 donated by these two groups was used to bring some desperately needed technology to our school. The last, final, and most difficult hurdle to making this project happen was updating the electrical supply available in our library, then connecting the new computers to the grid.

Kevin Arnoul and Shannon Robinson Keefe of Arnoul Electric came to our rescue. They not only donated their time and expertise to making this project happen, they personally raised funds to pay for the electrical materials. Keefe Plumbing, Patricia and Joseph Rodriguez, Jimmy Friel, Lela McKee, Peter Ryce at Beginnings, Gayle Arnoul Accounting, Desiree Deperna at Café Dolce, Vella Flooring, Black Hand Forge, Pete and Nikki Genolio, Whitethorn Construction, David Katz and many anonymous donors all deserve our deep appreciation and thanks.

We love our new Learning Center. Thank you to everyone who turned this idea into a reality.
