The Inspiration

The Yapo Computer Learning Center was named after Mr. Michael Yapo. Mr. Yapo served as the Treasurer of Walton Park Manor Cooperative (WPMC) Board of Directors for 15 years. He loved his family and the diverse community the he served. He was always concerned with ways to enrich the community.

Michael Yapo realized how computer would have an important role on our live. With that, Michael Yapo insisted that all of the board members take computer classes, including himself, a man who typed one key at a time, but determined to learn how to use a computer. Sadly, in September of 1992, Michael Yapo passed away.
