    MEMPHIS, Tenn. – One Memphis City School student got more than 70 brand new computers donated to her school.Last year 5th grade student Kristina White wrote a letter to Hewlett Packard, requesting new computers for Sherwood Elementary School. The company agreed and Thursday the high tech hardware was unveiled to the students.”It was a persuasive letter,” says Kristina. “So if he could give back to the community that the whole neighborhood could hear about it.”And persuade the company she did. HP donated more than 70 brand new desk top computers to the school. HP says it was Kristina’s letter that spurred the donation.”It was really touching in both her appreciation of HP as a company as well as her passion for the school and belief in how technology could help the school,” says Brian Becker, with Hewlett Packard.

    Superintendent Kriner Cash says in a time when money is tight, relationships with companies like hp become essential for updating the classroom and knowledge of technology.”They’ve been gracious not only in the donation of some really top grade computer hardware equipment, but they’re also trained all our staff on how to use this sophisticated new equipment,” says Cash.”Schools struggle to get enough technology out in their environment to really make it a centerpiece of how they teach,” says Becker. “So we saw technology within the school, but a limited amount of it.”Kristina was in 5th grade when she wrote to HP, now in middle school, she will not benefit from the technology, but says she’s excited to be able to help her alma mater.”The students get to have something because when I was here, they were less fortunate,” says Kristina. “Now they have the computers, they have a chance to catch up.”
