Leadership Rockwall 2017 to reveal final project at Open House Tuesday

Group officially unveils the Texas Health Rockwall Technology Lab to the public

(ROCKWALL, TX – May 6, 2017) Leadership Rockwall 2017 proudly reveals their year-long project this Tuesday—to provide a state-of-the-art technology lab for the Boys & Girls Club of Rockwall. A part of the Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce, the leadership group has been working diligently since last August to achieve their goal of raising the funds to provide computers for students who otherwise may not have them. It’s called the Texas Health Rockwall Technology Lab, and the public is invited to attend the official open house next Tuesday, May 9, from 3:30-5 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of Rockwall, located at 801 East Washington St.

Through this project, Leadership Rockwall 2017 has raised $87,000 in donations. The result is that the Boys & Girls Club of Rockwall now has a complete Technology Lab makeover including 10 brand new desktop computers and 30 tablets, with networking and safety features to enhance the students’ science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM education. Also included in the project are a series of robotic surgery demonstrations and health classes donated by title sponsor Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall.

As title sponsor, Texas Health Rockwall donated a total of $20,000 to the project, which earned them the exclusive naming rights to the computer lab. “This project has been an extremely worthwhile endeavor, and Texas Health Rockwall is proud to play a role in its success,” said Jason Linscott, Leadership Rockwall 2017 team member and CFO of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall. “It is our hope that through this partnership we encourage and promote a love of learning and discovery for future generations.”
