Loyola teen's program provides refurbished laptops to students

June 9, 2014View for printing

Computers play a vital role in education, both at school and at home. But not all students have their own computer, which can be a difficult challenge to overcome.

That is where Keegan Nicholson comes in.

Nicholson, a junior at Loyola Sacred Heart High School, is the founder of Laptops for Students, a service that provides free refurbished laptops to students who cannot afford to buy their own.

"Basically what I do is I take laptops, whether they're broken, whether they're working, whether they're new or old, and restore them into something I can give to another student to use for their education," Nicholson said.

The laptops are donated by people in the Missoula community, he said.
