Medical Careers Readiness
HTI donated laptops to Medical Careers Readiness of North Carolina (MCR), a medical training center that serves the focused areas of Vance, Warren, Franklinton, and Granville county regions.
Donated Chromebooks from HTI helped students to continue their studies and preparation to take National Exams. The impact has been both immediate and profound. Since HTI donated the devices students demonstrated a 30 percent score boosting success rates to 97 percent. MCR expressed strong appreciation for the opportunity to partner with HTI and hopes to receive additional Chromebooks to utilize for the students.
MCR provides use of the devices for students that do not have technology resources available to them. As shown in the picture below, needs surpassed current supply.
One student even had to rely on her mobile device to take her exam before the donation.
MCR strives to have devices available to help students achieve their goals and become successful. They expressed sincere gratitude for the work HTI does in the community and the impact that it has on small businesses and students' success.
At HTI, we count these successes as victories in the battle to build community resilience. The counties in which we serve have been designated by the government as socially and economically disadvantaged. According to the US Census Bureau, approximately 28 percent of Vance County residents lived below the federal poverty level and 60 percent higher than other NC counties. Based on the statistics, MCR understood the need to promote self-sufficiency to all people including low- and moderate-income families through specialized training programs that offer career development and sustainability. Thankfully, HTI has been able to help in the past and will continue to support MCR in the future.
