A computer or laptop that is not working properly can cause a lot of frustration, so Surry Community College’s Technology Club hosted a PC Repair Day recently to help computer users.

Club members worked on computers brought in by students, college personnel, and members of the community. Students performed services such as data recovery and transfer, hardware/software installations, virus removal, and other performance enhancing maintenance. These services were provided at no cost to the customers, but club donations were accepted.


Technology Club members and Information Technology students Dakota Davis of Mount Airy, Jacob Covington of King and Alexis Huffman of East Bend do data recovery, hardware/software installations, virus removals and other performance enhancements during PC Repair Day at Surry Community College.

Most of the Technology Club members are enrolled in SCC’s Information Technology degree, and Ethan Shumate of Mount Airy is dually enrolled at North Surry High School. He is also the club’s vice president. Anyone who loves to work with technology is welcome to join the Technology Club. Club members who participated at the recent event stated that it was a fun and valuable learning experience for them.
