LUTTRELL, Tenn.—As part of the continuing community effort to help out a Union County School that was vandalized and robbed of more than $10,000 worth of technology equipment, Oak Ridge Associated Universities has donated three desktop computers and one laptop to Luttrell Elementary School. The school's Principal Sonya Saylor (pictured left) accepted the donation from ORAU Systems Support Specialist John King (pictured right). ORAU, which regularly donates technology to area schools in need, decided to route its next batch of refurbished computers to Luttrell Elementary after hearing of the school's recent break-in. The donated computers were valued at $6,300 and included brand new hard drives, installed with Windows Vista and featured DVD burners.
