Guam – Guam Community College donated 69 sets of computers – CPUs, monitors, keyboards and mouses – to George Washington High School on Thursday, May 10.
The computers were situated in computer labs in D Building that are now being refurbished and used as classrooms since the opening of the new Student Center with its new computer lab in December.

“These computers are still in good working condition, and since GW is right next door and we have a very cooperative arrangement with that school, we immediately thought of their students and the school’s needs,” said Dr. Mary Okada, GCC president.
“Kudos to GCC for their generous donation. We continue to move forward to make GW a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) school and this is another step in that direction,” said Taling Taitano, acting GDOE superintendent.
