The Burnsville Recreation and Learning Center recently celebrated and awarded adult students for completion of their computer skills training class.
The students were asked to attend biweekly, two-and-a-half-hour sessions on Saturdays under the instruction of Inez Williamson. Upon completion of the 18-hour course, each student was issued a certificate for their hard work and success.
The computer session proved to be especially successful, with more than a dozen students enrolled.
During the celebration, students were given the opportunity to speak of their personal experiences while attending class. Several remarked that they own computers but were unsure of what to do with them. They praised Williamson for her patience, careful guidance and positive attitude toward them as students, as these attributes improved their overall computer skills and functions. Each student said their computer knowledge was greatly increased and that they cannot wait to attend the advanced sessions.
Fellow student Rosa Brewer was recognized and also awarded for her prefect attendance.
Center board member Marshall Caple, Jeremy Sikes and director Carol Smith were in attendance for the special occasion.
Applications are being taking now for the next class, which has a tentative start date of March 4.
