Connect Ohio, an affiliate of IIA-member Connected Nation, recently teamed up with the Ohio Telecom Association to distribute 400 computers to students and community centers through Governor Ted Strickland’s No Child Left Offline program.
On Monday, February 23, computers were donated all over Ohio in a combination of rural and urban areas, with the goal of allowing more Ohioans the benefit from the educational, economic, and health-related opportunities that broadband provides.
Gov. Strickland was on hand at one of these ceremonies at the Lorain County Boys and Girls Club, which received 24 new computers. “Technology plays a part in preparing young people for the future,” Gov. Strickland said at the event. “Our goal is to work for universal access, everywhere, for every family.”
