Ms. Wheelchair USA to guest teach at Campus for Creative Aging

ST. JOSEPH, Mich. -- The Campus for Creative Aging in Berrien County will welcome a guest instructor to its Computer Learning Center next week when Ms. Wheelchair USA, Fanchon 'Fannie' Pierce, will teach a Managing Your Photos with Google class.

“We are thankful to Fannie for volunteering her time to teach,” said Campus Coordinator Amy Nichols. “It takes a village of volunteers to run the classes here. We couldn’t do this work without them.”

Pierce was crowned Ms. Wheelchair USA in July of last year, and she is passionate about "empowering lives and building more effective leaders through peer mentoring.”

The glass will take place from 10-11:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 23 at the Campus for Creative Aging in St. Joseph and is free and open to the public, though space is limited.

Organizers say attendees will learn about loading, filing, editing and managing storage of their photos in the Google platform.

To register, contact Nichols at 269-982-7748 or [email protected].

“Some people walk in the door of the Beginner Computer Class not even knowing how to turn a computer on or what a mouse is, and they walk out being able to set up their own email address,” Nichols said.

Nichols says her and her team of volunteers are putting together a robust list of classes to be offered April through September this year.

"You won’t want to miss new classes we’ll be offering, like Basic Artificial Intelligence,” she said. “One of our missions here at the Campus is to facilitate education across the lifespan and we know that’s more important than ever in today’s technological world.”
