We are excited to announce that the computers will be replaced in the Burke Dykes Computer Center. Congratulations are in order due to the hard work and diligence of Burke Dykes who has been the brains behind our technology and upkeep of the computer lab since 1994. The Center was one of fifteen awardees selected out of a pool of 35 projects.
City officials believe one of the benefits of distributing the money is that it reaches residents whom the municipal government often struggles to engage. This year the fund is expected to help more than 6,000 residents of Seattle in underserved or underrepresented communities, including those of immigrants and refugees, at-risk youth, people with disabilities, and seniors.
This is very exciting news and we couldn’t have achieved it without Burke. Thank you, Seattle! And thank you, Burke!
