Approximately 50 Wayne County students receive new laptops critical to help them keep up with their remote learning assignments.
It all started with the Dekevias Atkinson and Douglas Horne, the President and Vice President of Dillard Goldsboro Alumni and Friends, Triangle Chapter.
Atkinson says they had heard there was a need in the Wayne County community, and they went to work.
Operation Unite Goldsboro, Southern Bank of Goldsboro, Kramden Institute of Durham, and the Dillard Goldsboro Alumni and Friends, Inc., Triangle Chapter all teamed together to present the 50 laptops to the students.
Horne says they were brought up with Dillard Goldsboro Alumni, and that spirit of giving back motivated them.
The Chromebooks were handed out to the students from 23 different schools at the Dillard Alumni Building Tuesday afternoon.
