Young Computer Builder Raises Money for Mind Matters

Angels Camp, CA ... A hand-made computer, created by Nicholas Tribble, 18, a senior at Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp, has resulted in a $2,000 gift to Mind Matters, the Murphys based clinic that treats autism and related disorders. When faced with the need to select a senior project, Tribble decided to use his interest in computers to create a unit from scratch and house it in a custom crafted case. To finance his project he created a raffle in which the winner would be given the computer, his expenses would be met, and the remainder of the money donated to Mind Matters. At ten dollars a chance, he was able to raise more than $3,200. The lucky winner is Judy Matson, Director of Music Ministries at Foothill Community Church, which Tribble and his family attend. Matson plans on using the computer at the church, replacing a very old model she had in her office. She will receive her unit after April 28, the day the students must present their projects to the school and the general public. “We are very proud of Nicholas and his accomplishments,” says Dr. Ryan Thompson, the founder of Mind Matters and its current Chief Executive Officer and Medical Director. “We will put his generous donation to good use in our Fast ForWord program, a computer centered learning lab.”

Nicholas Tribble is the son of Derrick and Lori Tribble, residents of Murphys since 1998. Derrick grew up in the area, and also attended Bret Harte High School. Nicholas also has a younger sister, Emma, who shares his love of learning, if not his fascination with computers.

Nicholas began his education at the Christian Family Learning center where he met several of the faculty who were instrumental in the founding of Mind Matters. Active at Bret Harte, being class valedictorian and a member of the golf team, he is enrolled at UC Davis for next fall in the Electrical Engineering department. He hopes to study the inner workings of computer circuitry and pursue a career in line with his interests.

Doug Tribble, Nicholas’ uncle, is on the Mind Matters board of directors.

The Mind Matters non-profit clinic exists to help individuals and families cope with the consequences of autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD/ADD), and learning disabilities. The clinic does this through treatment, counseling, and education. It also works to promote a better public understanding of these debilitating health issues.

The clinic is located at 150 Big Trees Rd. adjacent to the Murphys Post Office. Contributions to Mind Matters are tax deductible to the extent of the law. For further information, contact Mind Matters at 728-2184 or mindmattersclinic.org.
