Ballantyne Donation Enhances South Meck Computer Lab O n behalf of its Ballantyne Corporate Park (Ballantyne) tenants, Northwood Office will provide a significant contribution this holiday season to Eliminate the Digital Divide (E2D). The nonprofit agency came about when 12-year-old Franny Millen wanted to address the digital divide between those with computers at home and those without. Since 2013, E2D has worked with 118 schools in Charlotte-Mecklenburg to provide more than 1,800 families with laptops, digital access and computer training. The contribution by Ballantyne will fund the buildout of South Mecklenburg High School's computer lab, including enhancements to its security and network, one year of payroll for lab tech supervi- sion, as well as purchase of new hardware, hot-spot devices and software licenses. In addition to the contribution, Ballantyne is encouraging everyone in the community to donate used computers to E2D. Info: Donations: Photo by Ray Sepesy BALLANTYNE WINTER 2017-2018 15 Wire
