In selecting a benefit to assist with the funding of the upcoming Bevill State Moonbuggy project, instructor Maurice Ingle thought of incorporating bracelets into fundraising for the project with a special twist — the addition of a flashdrive that could be used by students, teachers or anyone who often loses the small external computer component.
“We’re always looking for fundraising ideas that will be successful for our moonbuggy project, and I know rubber bracelets are currently a big fashion trend,” Ingle said. “My students are constantly leaving or losing their flashdrives at computers in my class. With the bracelets, they’re easy to see and a person is far more capable of keeping up with them.”
Each bracelet contains a 2 gigabyte flashdrive located on the underside. They come in five colors: crimson, orange, pink, purple and black. The cost of each bracelet is $15 and can be purchased through student services at Bevill’s Jasper and Sumiton campuses.
