UHV LEAD Donates Computers to CISD Go Center


The Letting Education Achieve Dreams initiative at the University of Houston-Victoria recently donated two Dell Dimension 3000 Series computers to Calhoun Independent School Districtís Go Center.

Located at Calhoun High School, the Go Center provides high school students and Port Lavaca community members with resources to research higher education opportunities. Go Center visitors can access the computers to apply for financial aid, conduct scholarship research, and search for information on specific colleges and universities.

LEAD utilized funds from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Boardís First Generation College Student Grant to donate the computers and to award a $1,000 scholarship to Cecilia Ruiz, a senior at CHS who has used the Go Centerís resources. Ruiz was selected based on her essay submission detailing her long-term career goals and her classification as a first-generation college student upon entering her first year of college.



The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to more than 65 bachelorís and masterís degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Education & Human Development, and Nursing. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus as well as teaching sites in Fort Bend, Harris and Montgomery counties, and online classes that students can take from anywhere.
