Scott is one of our volunteers. He knew that the previous year each High School we work with had been taken a computer. One of those computers didn’t survive the travel and so for the last year this high school had been without any computer. Scott was determined to get them one bringing them into the new millennium with a bang. Packing this not-small donated computer into his luggage and schlepping it what seemed like a million miles, he finally got to Nkulumashiba Secondary High School.Working with the students to set it up in a classroom, they were all in awe having never seen computers before. Then Scott told them to hold their breaths and pray that it would work. All eyes were upon him when he plugged in the computer and the screen lit up and the Dell logo flashed on the screen. They all cheered in unison. It was the highlight of Scott’s trip. He spent the next several hours teaching the eager young eyes about how the computer worked and what kinds of things you could do with it. When they printed out a page with some pictures and words that they had put together, you would have thought by the looks on their faces that a UFO had just landed in the room..
