“We couldn’t be more thrilled to see our people use computers to enhance their quality of life. We also want to thank the volunteer tutors who give selflessly of their time to teach our tribe members – young and old. What the online world has to offer will be enlightening” said Fawn Sharp, chief of the Quinault Indian Nation.
One of the great things about SeniorNet is the dedication of our volunteers. The above pictures are the curriculum contest winners of the Microsoft Windows 2014 Open House.
