Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP announced today that the law firm has donated 55 personal computers and monitors to New Technology High School at Garinger High School. The PCs exceed the technological specifications the school requires for storage and speed and, after learning of additional needs in the school's computer lab, the Firm will be expanding its donation with the contribution five high-capacity laser printers.
Parker Poe CIO Steve Fletcher says Parker Poe routinely updates and replaces computer equipment in each of the Firm's six Carolina offices and will look for future opportunities to make similar contributions to New Technology High School and CMS.
Parker Poe is one of the largest and oldest law firms in Charlotte. More than 100-years-old, and with more than 100 of its 225 attorneys in Charlotte, the Firm has a history of supporting CMS. In fact, one of the Firm's namesakes, William E. Poe, was a chairman of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education more than 30 years ago. Today, additional educational activities of the Firm include support of Classroom Central, which collects and distributes free school supplies and books to teachers in various CMS schools. Parker Poe is also among many local law firms participating in "Lunch with a Lawyer." Sponsored by the Mecklenburg County Bar Association, "Lunch with a Lawyer" is a mentoring program for middle school students.
