Ag School Computers Find New Uses at Plains Tribal Colleges

Staff and students of the College of Agricultural Sciences at Colorado State University have donated 28 computers for educational use by tribal colleges on the Great Plains.

Edgar Peyronnin, information systems coordinator for the agricultural college, and Glen Rask, coordinator of Colorado State Cooperative Extension masters program who knows the needs of area tribal institutions, selected the recipients.

The Pentium II models went to Tanka/Huron University College in Eagle Butte, S.D.; United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck, N.D.;Nebraska Indian Community College in Macy, Neb.; and Little Priest Tribal College in Winnebago, Neb.

Laboratory manager Larry Karbowski supervised preparing the machines for shipment; the last will be sent on June 18.

The donated computers will be replaced by newer models chosen by Peyronnin and agricultural science students.
