On Tuesday, 50 Dunbar High School students went home with free laptops.

An organization called PCs for People made a stop at Dunbar High to bring the students free technology. These are laptops the students are allowed to keep, unlike the school-issued Chromebooks.

The high schoolers were pretty excited, and most knew exactly how they were going to use them.

“I’m actually planning to do dual enrollment, so that’s going into college and stuff early,” said sophomore Drake Pollard. “And if I get accepted, then… having a laptop like this is incredible. And it’s an opportunity that I couldn’t get otherwise; it’s amazing.”

“To either help me get my driver’s license or wherever I get my permit, and to let my siblings use it, too,” said sophomore Diego Andres.

“To further my education and just create my own space,” said freshman Daneisha Maycock.

The students had to sign up to receive the laptops, which were given out by raffle.
