Mountain Computer User Group, Inc. Contributes to Young Harris Annual Fund

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Young Harris College recently received a gift of $500 from Mountain Computer User Group, Inc. President Randy Gehring on behalf of the organization based in Young Harris, Ga., as a contribution to the Young Harris Annual Fund. 

The Young Harris Annual Fund turns individual gifts of all sizes into a collective source of support that creates outstanding opportunities for students and faculty and enhances many aspects of campus. Nearly half of the revenue received through the Young Harris Annual Fund supports student scholarships and financial aid, while the rest impacts the quality of a student’s academic and student life experience.

The Mountain Computer User Group is a nonprofit, tax-exempt educational organization without corporate or vendor affiliation. Its purpose is the encouragement and advancement of computer information and knowledge through "users helping users." For more information about the group, visit mcug.org.
