What Seniors are saying about WMT….

Eleanor Jean Dowdy peered at the computer screen as she hesitantly tapped at the keyboard. “I didn’t know one thing about any of this, but I really like it,” the 73 year old Sanford, North Carolina resident said. Dowdy took advantage of the new community computer class training classes to senior citizens.

“The class was really helpful and I learned a lot. I really enjoyed it”, said Helen McDowell.
