Dawson students get new technology

Some southwest Georgia school children are going to getting to use IPad minis in their afterschool program.

The money to buy those IPads comes from a $4,700 grant from the Sumter EMC Foundation to Positive Direction Youth Center in Dawson.
 Center founder Dorothy Tomlin says this new technology will inspire the students at the center to learn.

"This is a technology world now. We focus on technology for our children rather than pay the pencil.  They are more engaged," said Greg Crowder.

"It really, really helps the young people and the children.  We are making an investment in the community," said Dorothy Tomlin Positive Direction Founder.

This is the second year the Sumter EMC foundation has presented the center with a grant.
