In his opening remarks, Mr. Dibella told the crowd of 125 people that he had just been in the computer lab room teaching the students how to get onto www.hud.gov so they could learn how to get information on any government agency for their future homework assignments. Deputy Director Dibella acknowledged all the attendees honoring King M. Trimble, former City Councilman. Mr. Dibella remarked about the computer lab's excellent schedule of summer computer classes giving the students an opportunity to achieve their life dreams. Mr. Dibella remarked how HUD's HOPE VI grants of $733,000+ gave the community a jumpstart and to help students--young and old--fulfill their dreams. "By taking computer classes and using the computer lab, students will move forward on the challenging road of the information highway," said Deputy Director Dibella.
