Internet cafe in the works for Montgomery School District
Thanks to the American Legion Post No. 251, Montgomery School District will be able to extend the school’s library with an Internet Cafe.
During a school board meeting, the Montgomery Area School Board was presented with a $10,000 check from the local American Legion chapter. Jack Dudek and Glenn Crossley, members of the legion, presented the check.
Superintendent Daphne Ross and several students attended the October meeting of the s American Legion where they outlined Montgomery’s plan for a new internet cafe.
“They came in and described the idea behind the internet cafe, and outlined the devices that would be needed to make this program successful,” said Jack Dudek. As a result of the presentation, the Legion decided to donate the full $10,000 needed to fund the Internet cafe.
“We’re excited that we’re in a position where we can donate to such a wonderful cause,” Dudek said. Superintendent Ross outlined the function of the cafe.
“We want this to be a place where students can work online in a relaxed, coffee shop atmosphere. We’re hoping that the cafe will function like a commons area for the students,” Ross said.
She added that the school was hoping to sell Montgomery apparel and souvenirs out of the student-run cafe.
