N-CHS was recently named the recipient of a grant from Lowe’s Hardware through their Charitable Educational Foundation. The grant is valued at $11, 314. 18 and will allow N-CHS to purchase a Google Chromebook Cart.
The grant was written by Dorothy Dae and Billy Cannon. Each of them gathered information needed for the grant, and Mrs. Dae constructed the application document. The team arranged a meeting with the manager of the Lowe’s Hardware in Hickory where they pitched their idea and had the manager sign-off on the project.
The cart will consist of 30 Chromebooks and a cart that will allow for storage and the charging of the books. The cart will be assigned and shared within the English department. The school hopes this will allow their English department to expand upon technology integration in their lessons and create more of a blended learning environment. The computers will also be used to support End of Course testing throughout the school.
