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.

A 5th grader wrote a simple letter to HP and it was HER letter that got the elementary school she was attending more then 70 brand new computers.

Never under estimate the power of a child.
