School Donates 20 Computers

Powhatan School in Boyce has donated 20 computers to the Warrenton office of Literacy Volunteers of Fauquier County, one of the largest computer donations LVFC has received, according to Marcia Whitmore, president of the LVFC board.

Andrea Brown, Powhatan's director of development, needed to find a home for the computers when the school's computer lab was renovated last fall. She has served as a tutor and LVFC board member.
