The office of the Yuma County Superintendent’s and its Educational Service Agency (ESA) received a significant grant from Cisco Technologies. The grant provided TelePresence capability to more than 56 educational sites in Yuma County, which benefited approximately 40,000 students in our region. New educational program partnerships were established and resources were used to train staff and students in the use of TelePresence.  This effort has been made possible through the guidance of Lumen Incorporated Team. Their assistance has allowed a small County ESA with limited staff to effectively and efficiently obtain and manage this grant to the benefit of our county’s students and staff.   I cannot imagine our effort being the success it has been without the Lumen assistance.
