St. Edwards on the Lake school in Lakeport is receiving a $25,000 technology donation of Dell computers on behalf of Intel and the Staples store in Fort Gratiot. Staples stores across the country were part of the contest.
Five employees at the Fort Gratiot store formed a team and competed in the competition which was named, “Score with Intel Core.” They ended up having the highest score in the country and won first prize in the contest. With the win, the team had the opportunity to select a school that would receive the technology donation. St. Edward’s was selected because one of the team members has a relative that works at the school. The school’s principal, Nancy Appel said she, “was very excited when [she] heard the news.” She also said there will be a presentation at the school on October 11th. Staples Fort Gratiot Sales Manager, William Ruprecht said they were “happy to win the contest.”
