Ark-La-Tex Students Getting Free Laptops

Students at Southwood High School's Biotechnology Magnet Academy are hauling home some high-tech hardware.

Each freshman in the program was given a laptop Tuesday morning thanks to a $25,000 donation made possible by the Poindexter Foundation.

It's part of an integrated curriculum launched last year.

Students get to use the laptops for their studies throughout the four-year program.

And the best part - once they complete the four year program, they get to keep the computers.
