Business donates laptops to Middleton

Students at Middleton High School will have a chance to win a laptop computer this month when they take the FCAT, thanks to a generous donation from a local business.

Sanwa Growers Inc., a Tampa produce company, donated 10 Acer laptops as part of a partnership with the school in order to give students an extra incentive to take and do well on the exam, according to Rosemary Buchanan, Middleton's community liaison. Students who attend school and take the exam on Tuesday will be eligible to win one of the laptops.

The winners will be chosen through a random drawing, Buchanan said.

Sanwa Growers has previously partnered with the school to provide food for public events.
