Months ago, Senator Ruben Diaz had no idea what a SMART Board was. Today, Diaz is determined to put SMART Boards in classrooms throughout the 32nd Senate District: Soundview, Castle Hill, Hunts Point, Longwood, Parkchester and west Pelham Parkway.

Diaz visited the Mott Hall V middle school on Tuesday, September 22 to bless seven new SMART Boards, some of the first granted to School District 12. Diaz funded the SMART Boards as a member item via the Hispanic Federation.

“I plan to do this at every school in my district,” Diaz said.
