Grant purchases new computer for K-8

The Pickett County Government recently
secured a grant with the help of
the Upper Cumberland Development
District to purchase a new computer and
printer for the Junior High English Class
at Pickett County K-8.
"The class is very thrilled to have the
computer and printer that was donated
by Stephen Bilbrey and they use it daily
and were in great need of it,ā€¯ said
Pauletta Dowdy, teacher.
According to Pickett County Executive,
Stephen Bilbrey, "The lifeblood of
any community is its young people. In
this time of budget cutbacks and economic
uncertainty, its great that we can
purchase equipment like this to keep our
children up-to-date with the current
technology because every bit helps. Its
also good for our community when we
work with organizations such as the
UCDD that have our best interests at
heart. The folks there live and work in
our local communities and they have a
vested interest in our success. We appreciate
their help and the help of our local
school officials and teachers.
