Pat Furr and Francis Fawcett win the Jim Lynch Award

Pat Furr and Francis Fawcett received the Jim Lynch Award from the International Comptuer Refurbishers Summit in Austin, TX in November. Pat Furr, the Founder/President of Computers for Classrooms, was recognized for the many years of dedication and support to other refurbishers. Francis was the Microsoft Director of the Registered Refurbisher Program that allows refurbishers to license donated computers when they are to be used in schools, with non-profits or low-income families. Francis will not be as involved with the MRR Program in the future so the members wanted to recognize her efforts in furthering the cause of obtaining technology for schools and families that can’t afford to buy new products.
