July 31, 1986 — Keith Henry is devising a program which will allow computers, linked by telephone lines, to draw to each other.

The Luray resident says his program — slated to retail for $95 — will be an ideal tool for architects who need to alter floor plans overnight.

“It will be one of the most sophisticated out on the market,” Henry said recently.

Henry, a soft-spoken rising junior at Luray High School, first dabbled with computers as a sixth- grader at Springfield Elementary School. Five years later, he is a teenage entrepreneur.
