Grant will fund purchase of Augmented Reality lab to be used for stroke awareness campaign.

Recently, the Lamar High School EAST program was awarded a $4,327.00 grant as part of the EAST After Hours program. This program allows students the opportunity to complete specific community service projects after normal school hours.

The project is funded by the Enhancing Education Through Technology grant made possible by the Arkansas Department of Education and is done in cooperation with the Southeast Educational Service Cooperative and the EAST Initiative.

Thanks to the grant, the group will be purchasing an Augmented Reality Development Lab to assist them in an audio/visual presentation and community-wide stroke awareness campaign and showcase later in the year.
