Suddlenlink donates tech to VISD

Quintin Shepherd, Victoria schools Superintendent; Kelly Gabrysch, Shields Elementary School principal; Mandi Prichard, Shields Elementary School assistant principal; Curt Allison, Altice USA market engagement specialist; and Schott Heimann, Suddenlink local retail supervisor are shown with donations to Shields Elementary School from Altice USA.

Suddenlink donated iPads and earbuds to Shields Elementary School.

The donation is part of a $1 million initiative impacting 30 school districts in the areas served by the parent company, Altice USA.

Shields Elementary School received 20 iPads and 600 earbuds with microphones. This donation increases access to virtual classroom opportunities, connectivity, and online curriculum for Victoria school students.

“At Suddenlink, we are proud to support the communities we serve and their school districts, who play a critical role in helping to develop the innovators and technologists of tomorrow,” said Mike Petty, regional vice president of Suddenlink.

“It is truly a blessing to have Altice partner with Shields and donate iPads and earbuds for our students,” added Shields Elementary School Principal Kelly Gabrysch. “During this difficult time of COVID, we did not have the technology we needed to implement digital learning like we wanted to. Safety concerns are very high right now and with the donation of the earbuds, every student will be able to have their own individual set for the year. With this donation, it will be extremely helpful for students to access research-based computer programs for reading and math.”
