The Eureka Springs High School EAST Program and the Carroll County Community Technology Center recently held free computer classes for county residents, local businesses, school teachers and City Departments. The Technology Center was created by the Eureka Springs EAST Program to help the economic development of Carroll County.

The PowerPoint class taught participants how to create effective presentations. The Spreadsheet class taught participants how to create charts, formatting, equations and formulas. Participants came from Cornerstone Bank, Eureka Springs Park and Recreation Department, Eureka Springs School District, Eureka Springs Transit Department, Geraldi's, Imagery Photo, and Rock Haus Lodge. EAST Program students Cassady, Joey, Philipp and James, and EAST Program Facilitator Mila Lynne Floro conducted the classes.

 

The Center has offered many free classes that included basic and advanced computer training to parents, local skilled and unskilled work force, emergency services providers (fire, police, 911, EMS), city personnel, small business owners and workers, and retirees.

The EAST Program, which currently provides technological expertise for its various community projects, serves as a source of trainers and mentors to the parents, business people and residents who use the Technology Center. The Center has received technical advice and financial support from the Arkansas Department of Education, Arvest Bank, Bank of Eureka Springs, Carroll County Community Foundation, Community First Bank, EAST Initiative, Eureka Springs EAST Lab, Eureka Springs Police Department, Eureka Springs School District, First National Bank of Berryville, Northwest Arkansas Community Foundation, Walton Foundation and Elise and Martin Roenigk.

The EAST Program is a high school class that encourages students to use high-end technologies to design and implement service-based community projects.
