Fran Baile addresses the class.

The Computer Science Department hosted its second annual Hackathon event on April 6, 2019. Students from Mt. Vernon High School were invited to the event to help create a new homepage for Hawthorne Foundation Inc., an organization that provides quality education and recreational programs for individuals with disabilities. The Iona Computer Science students volunteered to share their web programming skills and knowledge with the high school students, making the event rewarding for all.
