May 29, 2019— Micro Center and Intel donated $10,000 to Goodson Middle School to help improve the school’s technology resources during a brief presentation at the school on May 28.
Micro Center won the money through Score with Intel Core, a nation-wide knowledge-based competition where electronics retailers from across the country compete head to head. Store sales representatives are asked to expand their knowledge about Intel technology and the devices they sell by completing weekly trainings and microlearning lessons and scoring well on a final exam. Winning stores select a local school to receive a donation from Intel on the store’s behalf. Jeff White, Micro Center’s general manager, asked his employees to vote for a school in case they won money in the competition. Ajay Shukla, a Micro Center employee, encouraged his colleagues to vote for Goodson because his daughter, Sania Shukla, is currently in seventh grade at Goodson.
“We plan on using the money to increase and enhance the technology resources beyond what the district already provides and really honor the meaning behind this technology grant that was awarded to us,” Richard Dixon, Goodson principal, said.
Micro Center competed in the competition in 2018. Score with Intel Core is an Intel Retail Edge program.
