University of Phoenix, Comcast ‘Connect’ Families

A dozen families got free computers and Internet access for a year thanks to APS Education Foundation partners.

A dozen families at Emerson Elementary received refurbished computers from the University of Phoenix and free Internet for a year from Comcast in an effort to get more students connected at home.

The computers were presented by Chris Maroney of the University of Phoenix during a short ceremony at the school Wednesday, Nov. 15. Also on hand was Eilene Vaughn-Pickrell of Comcast who announced that the families would be connected to the Internet for a year free-of-charge.

The APS Education Foundation and its partners recognize the importance of providing students who come from impoverished situations the opportunities to learn to use digital media effectively. Closing the achievement gap can only become a reality by giving students the richest learning opportunities available regardless of their background. Learning in college and careers no longer relies solely on teachers and books as resources.
