The Diversity Christian Center (DCC) has expanded their computer lab thanks to a grant from the Coosa Valley Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Council.

State Senator Jim Preuitt and Representative Steve Hurst helped secure the grant along with Talladega County SWCD Supervisor Jay Watson and NRCS District Conservationist Thomas McDaniel.


The grant will be used to purchase and install six new computer stations in the DCC computer lab. The expanding computer lab will be used by the DCC school students and the DCC Outreach Program.

DCC will extend its computer lab to the community and surrounding areas by offering adult computer classes that will provide the fundamental computer knowledge and job skills that are necessary for current and future job markets. In addition, the new computers will be used by the DCC after-school tutoring program.
