Kentucky School for the Deaf received a $10,000 donation Thursday from AT&T Pioneers to buy new computers for its dorm rooms.
The donation was given as part of ConnectKentucky's No Child Left Offline initiative.
"This is a great day for Kentucky School for the Deaf," said Larry Conner, chief operations officer at KSD.
Conner added that with a boost in technology in the dorms, KSD students get a boost at being competitive counterparts with other schools.
"I hope this is just the beginning," he said.
The No Child Left Offline initiative has made almost 1,500 computers available to disadvantaged individuals since it began in 2005.
The $10,000 donation Thursday will buy KSD dorms 21 new desktop computers to replace current ones. Donna Martin, student development supervisor at KSD, said this is the first time KSD has had an upgrade of new equipment in the dorms. The dorms usually get recycled and refurbished equipment as labs get rid of old equipment.
