The presentation of new iPads, side-tracked earlier because of weather, finally took place at Wooster Elementary School.

The school received three new iPads from Shayne and Jennifer Hobbs of Hobbs Construction and Tracy Tidwell of ERA Henley Real Estate. For every house that closes in Bianca Meadows between now and May 30, one new iPad will be donated to the school.

Hobbs Construction is developing the Bianca Meadows subdivision in Greenbrier, and the Tracy Tidwell Team of ERA Henley Real Estate markets Bianca Meadows. This is a subdivision of energy-efficient homes being built on one- to two-acre lots just minutes from Wooster Elementary. Prices for houses in Bianca Meadows start at $170,000.

Principal Tally Mars said, “Students will use the iPads for landscape design for the school pond, growth and profit analysis with the school garden and various other projects. With this donation coming from one of our local businesses, it supports and enhances the bond between the school and the community.”

Tidwell and Hobbs agree that one way to improve their community is to enhance education. Hobbs and Tidwell’s “Technology in Education” partnership is a natural fit since Shayne Hobbs’ daughter, Bianca, attends Wooster Elementary School. Tracy Tidwell shows her support for those in the education field through her affiliation with Homes for Heroes, an organization that allows her to give back a percentage of her commission to community heroes such as teachers and school staff.
