ATMC Partners with Pender County Schools and Four County EMC to Bring Internet to Students Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic

Pender County, NC - ATMC has partnered with Pender County Schools and Four County Electric Membership Corporation to create four Wi-Fi hotspots that will allow Pender County families to access educational material for their school-aged children while schools are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Wi-Fi access points are located at Pender High School, Heide Trask Senior High School, Topsail High School and the Pender County Public Library in Burgaw. The hotspots have a range of several hundred feet and will be available seven days a week from the hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“Last Monday, a lot of students and their families picked up Chromebooks from our schools in anticipation of online learning becoming necessary. With help from our community partners, including ATMC, Four County Electric, the Pender County Government and NCDOT, we’re trying to make sure our students have the opportunity to access the information they need to keep learning,” commented Pender County Schools Superintendent, Dr. Steven Hill.

Four County Electric Membership Corporation’s CEO, Mitchell Keel, also commented saying “As one of the current broadband providers for Pender County Schools, we knew we needed to come up with an innovative solution to keep students connected while schools are closed due to the pandemic. We are happy that this partnership with ATMC and Pender County Schools allowed us to create hotspots that will allow many students the ability to keep up with their schoolwork.”

Earlier today, Governor Cooper announced in a press conference that North Carolina public schools will be closed until May 15th, meaning that the need for internet access will be crucial in keeping students connected to their teachers and to their schoolwork.

“These are really unprecedented times, and ATMC is glad that we can help,” said Keith Holden, ATMC CEO. “We were proud to be able to work with Four County EMC and Pender County Schools to design and implement a solution that will be critical to keeping students connected.”
