Historic Home Real Estate Philanthropist Howard Rudzki Donates Computers and Printers to Castro Middle School
Real estate philanthropist and community preservationist, Howard Rudzki, has donated 20 computers and 10 printers that will be used to start a new computer lab at Castro Middle School. The new computer lab is part of the school’s goal to make technology an integral part of every classroom so that each child has the opportunity to be educated to his or her full potential.
Over the past five years, Rudzki has played a key role in the transformation of the the Highland Park neighborhood and has been recognized for his work in preserving more than a dozen historic Craftsman and Victorian homes to their former glory.
“I believe we all have an obligation to give back to our communities and preserve the rich diversity that make Los Angeles unique,” Rudzki says. “And this includes ensuring that all children, who are our future leaders, are able to receive a good education. I hope that the new computer lab will foster an interest in science and technology for these young students.”
“We are grateful to Howard Rudzki for this very generous donation which will allow us to realize our vision for a brand new computer lab,” said Joy Watkins, principal at [insert school name.] “This will be wonderful resource for both our students and our teachers and furthers our commitment to delivering all students with a well rounded education that sets them on a bright path for the future.”
According to Watkins, purchasing the computers outright is not even be a possibility for the school given other demands on its budget.
