About 250 students at Dallas ISD’s Emmett J. Conrad High School received free mobile devices and wireless internet connectivity recently.
The donation marked the launch of Sprint and the Sprint Foundation’s 1Million Project, an initiative aiming to lessen the digital divide in the U.S. Over the next five years, the Overland Park, Kansas-based company will equip 1 million disadvantaged high schoolers with mobile devices and wireless internet connectivity.
“Many of our students have the will and skill to be successful at school, however, many of them lack adequate technology resources when they leave campus to complete homework and research assignments,” Conrad Principal Anthony Mays said in a release.
“We are so excited to be a part of this program that will help our students to meet family needs at home while staying on pace and completing their assignments on time.”
