Program designed to ensure all Sage Hill School financial aid students have the technology they need to be successful in high school, paving the way for a bright future

Costa Mesa, CA – April  14, 2014 – Red8, the industry expert in architecting the software defined data center, today announced that it is supporting local area high school financial aid  students with a program that raises funds specifically for laptops and computer equipment to be used by the Sage Hill  Scholars.

“Red8 is committed to helping improve the opportunities and quality of life in communities where our employees live and work,” said Richard Heard, president of Red8.  “Access to current technology is essential to be successful in today’s school.  And given our business, we have a great opportunity to make a difference in the academic experience of the Sage Hill Scholars who have worked so hard and achieved so much to get there.  With the right technology we are confident that these students can change the course of their lives and achieve their dreams.”

Sage Hill School in Newport Coast, CA is dedicated to academic excellence balanced with athletics, arts, and service to the community. Students hail from a wide range of economic, cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds; socio-economic diversity is a priority at Sage Hill School.  Nearly fifteen percent of all students at Sage Hill School receive financial aid. Some Sage Hill Scholars will be the first in their families to college. Together Sage Hill School and Red8 are striving to make sure that students not only receive the aid they need to attend the school, but that they have access to all the tools and technology necessary to be successful while enrolled.

“Our school aims to offer a transformative experience for a broad cross-section of students from all across the county.  We grant financial aid to talented students who would not have otherwise been able to become a part of our community,” said Sage Hill School Head of School, Patricia Merz.   “We are grateful to have Red8 as a partner.  With their support, we are able to provide students with the computers they need to be successful.”

Red8’s recent philanthropic golf event at Pelican Hill brought together business partners and customers and successfully raised thousands for the Sage Hill Scholars program.

“We would like to thank all of our partners and customers that have joined in and donated to this great cause.  We are very proud to be part of this program that gives these students a ‘first chance’ opportunity.  The Sage Hill Scholars are exceptional individuals and we look forward to seeing their future contributions to our community and the world,” continued Heard.
