About Potter's Computer Center
The mission of Potters Computer Center is to provide innovative educational outreach programs in classroom setting that focus on science, engineering, and information technology with positive goal setting, personal responsibility, substance abuse prevention and teamwork skills. We are located in the heart of the Midlands and surrounding areas.
During the 2007-2008 school year, Mr. Thomas Anderson, Owner of Potters Computer Systems, while collaborating with Cisco Networking Instructor at the Heyward Career Center both shared a passion for students being successful in their education, especially in the area of technology. Mr. Anderson as an instructor has volunteered more than 3500 hours including time at Skills USA annual competition to help motivate and instruct the students.
The result was an increase in enrollment in Cisco Networking and Computer Repair from 12 to approximately 70 students. Students became proficient in Computer Repair and Cisco Networking, often times applying their skills working within the school district and in some cases in the district helping the IT Department troubleshoot and inoculate viruses. The students were so confident of their skills that they built personal computers for Superintendent and the District's CATE Director who gave rave reviews of the computer systems (Richland School District One).
