Mobile, AL - Hargrove Engineers + Constructors donated 28 computers and monitors to replace the ones damaged or destroyed by the Christmas Day tornado that tore through mid-town Mobile, devastating Murphy High School.
Patricia Hunter, vice principal of Murphy High School, accepted the computers on behalf of the school and thanked Hargrove Engineers + Constructors’ for the donation. Hargrove donated these computers to help the school return to normalcy during this time of crisis. The tornado destroyed the largest high school in Alabama, along with most of the technology in it.
“After the tornadoes tore through midtown and seeing the destruction of Murphy High School, we wanted to find a way to help. Donating computers was an obvious way we could contribute to get things back on line,” said Tommy McNeal, Chief Information Officer for Hargrove. “While it doesn’t fix everything that was lost, we hope it’s a step towards helping the students and faculty return to achieving a great education.”
Recently, the Alabama State Legislature passed a $30 million bond; $15 million of it will go toward restoring Murphy High School. The rest of the money will be distributed to five other high schools damaged by tornadoes.
