Firm helps Boys and Girls Club design Web site

June 15, 2009

High Rock Studios recently teamed up with the Boys & Girls Club of Washington County to help students develop a new Web site for Children In Need, another local nonprofit.

During May and June, the staff from High Rock took turns teaching students how to build a Web site from start to finish. The students designed the Web site on an iMac computer donated by Left Brain Foundation, an organization founded by High Rock Studios to help worthy local and regional causes.

"Computer literacy is an important step toward bridging the digital divide," said Founder and President Rich Daughtridge. "We're happy to help the Boys & Girls Clubs of Washington County develop technology skills in local kids."

The Web site design was presented at the Boys & Girls Club's annual dinner May 21 and officially launched June 2. The new Web site is at www.childreninneedwashingtoncounty.org.
