Receiving a check for $30,000 signaled a grand day for the Woodland Park branch of the Colorado Springs Christian School.

A gift from Peak Internet and its chief executive officer Jayson Baker, the funds will be used to update the technology infrastructure by connecting both campuses via fiber-optic cable.

“We are thrilled and grateful that Jayson decided to bless us with more reliable and faster internet connection,” said Roland DeRenzo, Ph.D., and the schools’ superintendent.

DeRenzo; Erin Wilcox, Ph.D., assistant superintendent; Mike Aragon, the school’s principal; and Ken Day, director of technology, received the check Aug. 13 at the Woodland Park campus.

“We love to support education and believe in the mission of the Colorado Springs Christian School,” Baker said. “Someday we hope to send our kids here.”

Baker and his wife, Katie Baker, are expecting their first child Dec. 17. Recently, Peak Internet was named among Colorado Companies to Watch.
