Dr. Suzanne Buchele traveled with a team from Southwestern to deliver reusable computers and components to Honduras.

Last fall Suzanne Buchele traveled with the Southwestern team including David Williamson and Terry Truett to deliver reusable computers and components to Save the Children in Honduras.  The relationship between Southwestern and Save The Children in Honduras has been on-going for over 10 years, and has been the main outlet for the computers and some of the other technology that gets cycled out of Southwestern offices and labs every 3-5 years.  Computers were delivered to many schools and non-profits in and around La Esparanza.   In addition, computers that were delivered years ago that were no longer working were diagnosed and parts swapped out, to leave them with as many working computers as possible. The team interacted with many appreciative students, teachers, and community members.  The week-long trip was very rewarding!
