WALDORF, Md. (March 3, 2012)—The Community Bank of Tri-County has donated over 20 17" monitors to St. Peter's School in Waldorf. The monitors became available after the bank underwent a system-wide technology upgrade, resulting in some excess hardware. This gift will help the school achieve its goal of increased access to technology across all grades.
"St. Peter's is delighted to receive this gift," says J.R. West, Principal of St. Peter's School. "Through the generous donation of Community Bank, we can finish upgrading the monitors in our existing computer lab, as well as commence with the planned expansion."
"At Community Bank of Tri-County, we believe in the value of the community and making a difference in the areas where we work and live," said Hillary Theriault, Vice President and Director of Marketing of Community Bank of Tri-County and St. Peter's School parent. "One of our values here at the bank is to be community-focused. So, when I contacted IT about the possibility of donating this gently-used equipment to the school, they were more than happy to help."
St. Peter's School is an Archdiocese of Washington Catholic School. It was established by Rev. Henry Sank in 1956 as the first Catholic school in Southern Maryland that was never racially segregated. Classes are currently offered for Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students.
