Including the September 2012 graduates, We are thankful for the 388 graduates of the computer classes.
Mac McGee will be our leader for the Adult Introductory Class.
Gene Bryan will be our leader for the Adult Internet/Electronic Mail Class. Many of the adults who have completed Gene Bryan’s class found it was most helpful to them to have first completed Mac McGee’s class.
We are thankful and honored to have the leadership of Mac McGee as volunteer Leader/Facilitator and editor of Part I and Part II of the manual “Introduction to the Personal Computer, A basic instruction program designed for Senior Adults” (Manual). Prior to January 15, 2004, Mac assisted Frank Tripp, Jr. in the assembly and installation of our present work stations. Mac McGee has faithfully and most capably served as Leader/Facilitator for each Introductory Class since the beginning our first class in March 2004. In addition to the “Manual,” Mac’s use of printed handouts and demonstrations and his efforts to make the sessions “FUN” for the participants (The acronym “FUN” stands for:
Focus, Unending Quest, for Nowledge.) has added greatly to the effectiveness of his leadership and instruction.
Emogene “Gene” Bryan has faithfully and most capably served as volunteer Leader/Presenter and editor of the Internet Electronic Mail, Part III, of the manual “Introduction to the Personal Computer, A basic instruction program designed for Senior Adults.” We are thankful and honored to have the leadership of Gene Bryan as Leader/Presenter for each Internet/Email (Advanced) class from the initial March 2004 class. In addition to the Manual, Gene uses the Church’s digital projector in her instructional program. Gene also provides Email lesson plans, additional source materials, and projects which each participant could forward (Email) from his/her Frank Tripp, Jr. Computer Lab station to his/her own computer at home.
