Regional learning centers to get donated computers

Staff report

The commonwealth of Kentucky will donate 125 refurbished computers to four western Kentucky eLearning centers. The gifts represent a component of a partnership between the Commonwealth Office of Broadband Outreach and Development and the Office of Regional Outreach at Murray State University.

These centers, in Ballard, Carlisle, Hickman and Fulton counties, will give residents access to broadband-connected computers. The facilities provide computer access and educational programming to those who don't have online access to perform essential tasks such as job searches, online classes, registering for services, filing taxes, vehicle shopping or researching health care options, according to Brian Kiser, executive director of the Commonwealth Office of Broadband Outreach and Development.

"A partnership such as this is a key part of the state's outreach efforts to make a difference in our citizens' lives," he said. "Working with MSU and the Purchase Area Development District helps us direct our resources where they can have the most impact."
