Project Smile is born

This is a new activity at TTM that gives kids a chance to do something they otherwise can only dream about

Students names are placed in a box and once a month one lucky person's name is selected at random

This winner receives $15 of dream money to do something special with a friend

All they do in return is take a couple photo's to show some highlight of their 'special evening'

Meet Viet the first Project Smile winner who took several of his TTM friends out for a bowl of Hue's famous Bun Bo

Continuous improvement 

Every year we try to retire a few more of the very ancient 486 PC's that really belong in a museum

Recently we started using a new NComputing product that enables multiple users to effectively share a single computer

Now for less than $1000 the school can add 4 brand new workstations (less than half the previous cost)

Another side benefit is that all 4 workstations can share a single hard drive which means less exposure to virus' and much less use of expensive electricity
