You’re never too old to learn something new.

Senior citizens in Tyronza will soon get a chance to put that adage to the test.

The Marion Bearden Senior Center recently received a $19,879 grant from the Earnest and Anna Ritter Family Endowment.

The money, according to the mayor’s office, will be used to implement a computer learning program at the center.

East Poinsett County High School seniors, serving as mentors, will teach local senior citizens how to use computers, tablets and E-readers.
