Fresno State hosted an event Monday to celebrate a major donation by AT&T to educational efforts in the Central Valley.
Rhonda Johnson, AT&T president in California, was one of the representatives present at the Smittcamp Alumni House to commemorate the $100,000 investment. The university itself saw some of these investments in their own Mobile Student Services, “Tiny Office” and DISCOVERe mobile technology program.
“Students throughout Fresno County benefit when private companies like AT&T boldly invest in educational initiatives to promote academic excellence and address vital community needs,” said Joseph Castro, Fresno State president.
Portions of the donation also went to Central Valley Promise and the tech education nonprofit 59DaysOfCode.
“We are glad to play a part in advancing education, strengthening communities and improving lives in the Fresno community,” Johnson said.
