Vision Source held a contest and raffled off a free laptop with
Microsoft Office and Microsoft Student software (plus a back pack).

Sherwood was the lucky winner of this year’s “Kids with Vision”
program! Alicia is a senior attending Sherwood High School and was
extremely excited and thankful for her laptop and software. We were
overjoyed to be able to give back to an intelligent young mind such as
Alicia, who will be able to use the laptop and provided software to
excel in classes and help in her continued steps towards success.
“Kids with Vision” will continue to be a standard yearly community program for ABC Vision Source and one of the ways we will regularly support the Sherwood community and its residents. “Kids with Vision” will always have a focus on the Vision and Education of Sherwood Children. “We think it is a great program to support the families and future of Sherwood, Oregon” says Dr. Mari Ward.
