Sprint donated free mobile devices and free high-speed wireless Internet connectivity to about 250 students at Emmet J. Conrad High School on Jan. 13.
The donation kicked off Sprint’s 1Million Project, which aims to help give mobile devices and wireless Internet connectivity to 1 million disadvantaged high school students over five years.
“When we learned about Sprint’s 1Million Project, we quickly applied in hopes that we would be selected,” said Dr. Emmett J. Conrad School Principal Anthony Mays. “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. 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.”
