Connect Ohio Awards Computer to Ross County Every Citizen Online Participant

By COH Staff

On Monday, July 18, Connect Ohio presented Cathy McComis of Chillicothe with a new laptop computer at Chillicothe and Ross County Public Library. McComis was selected as a winner in a random drawing following her participation in the Every Citizen Online program, a free statewide basic computer and Internet training program.

“I loved the training and the instructor is one in a million,” said McComis. “I don’t have a computer, so now I can go get Internet at home. I’m so excited.”

“We at the library congratulate Cathy McComis for completing the Connect Ohio online course at the library,” said Jennifer McKell, library director. “The library’s goal is to get everyone in Ross County online, who wants to be online, in order to connect to the broader world of information. We will be continuing the free Connect Ohio computer classes through 2011 and 2012. Cathy’s win through the one-time Connect Ohio drawing is great. The real winners are she and everyone else who becomes comfortable in the online world by taking the course.“

Congratulations Cathy McComis!
