ECC Holds Computer Class for Princeville Residents

Sylvia Hinton-Grant, director of Human Resources Development at Edgecombe Community College, instructs a class on Simple Computers for Princeville residents. The Princeville Senior Center requested the class for its members.

Princeville residents recently learned basic computer skills through a class designed especially for them at Edgecombe Community College.

Mary Tate, director of the Princeville Senior Center, requested the class for senior center members who were interested in improving their computer skills.

According to Sylvia Hinton-Grant, director of Human Resources Development at ECC, “We were happy to host a class for this group of vibrant adults who wanted to strengthen their technology skills to better connect with family and friends.”

Among the students was Milton Bullock, former vocalist for the Platters who is known as the “Golden Platter.” Bullock is an Edgecombe County native who attended Princeville and Patillo schools.

All of the students received a certificate of completion of 24 hours of training.

Hinton-Grant adds, “The college provides free classes on basic workplace skills and can hold classes for community groups if a sufficient number of students register.”
