In a collaboration separate from the recent $20.4 million GE Foundation grant to Milwaukee Public Schools, GE Healthcare and CompuCom unveiled a new computer / media lab at MPS' Samuel Morse / John Marshall School for the Gifted and Talented.

The project got underway in November and completely made over a school space into a shiny new computer lab boasting 45 computers donated by CompuCom.

The lab was officially opened on Wednesday.

GE Healthcare has partnered with MPS since 1947, according to district superintendent Dr. Gregory Thornton.

Workers from GE Healthcare, some divisions of which are headquartered in the Milwaukee area, donated supplies and volunteered time to complete the work. Some funds were also donated for other equipment, like projectors.
