School raffles off car for technology

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - J. L. Lomax Elementary School is raffling off a car to get more technology in the school.

The school is selling tickets for a 2017 Ford Fiesta. All the money raised will go towards putting laptops and tablets in every classroom.

The school hopes to be a one-to-one school. Meaning every student is provided with technology.

The principal said keeping up with technology will better prepare students for college and future careers.

Raffle tickets costs $10 a piece and can be purchased at the school and from employees. The car was donated, including the cost of taxes.

The drawing will be May 12.
