It was a very exciting day for students at one local middle school.
41 kids received free computers through a grant program with Beaufort County Schools.
It's part of gear up, a plan to help students prepare for college.
Tuesday, some in the program at P.S. Jones Middle School got a look at their new electronics.
Wednesday, 24 other students at Washington High School will get theirs.
All of these kids are academically motivated and don't have a computer at home.
Program organizers want students and their parents to know they're there for them.
If you are a student at P.S. Jones or Washington High School, currently in 7th through 10th grade you are automatically in gear up, Bonner says all you need to do is take the initiative to participate.
