Flippin Receives New Computers for South Shore Memory Project Under Technology Grant
August 1999

South Shore Foundation donates computers to Flippin High School to use for South Shore Memory Project.

The new equipment was purchased with a $95,000 Arkansas Department of Education Technology Literacy Challenge Fund grant, and will allow students to continue the South Shore Memory Project. The South Shore Memory Project started last school year under the direction of Allen C. Benson, Arkansas State University Mountain Home director of library services, who worked with the Flippin students and instructors, Dianne Wade and Sandie Melton. The new media lab will enable participation by all high school students and faculty in the continuation of the South Shore Memory Project. The goal of the project is to create a computer-based library that preserves family histories of local people in text, images, and sound. Students have interviewed many of Flippin's older citizens, scanned old photographs onto the computer and recorded the voices of those interviewed. The initial $25,000 funding of the digital history project was by the South Shore Foundation, the charitable foundation funded by Northern Arkansas Telephone Company. Tony White is of A Plus Computers of Harrison, the company that was the successful bidder on supplying the computer equipment.
