Excited children filled with anticipation waited anxiously in the Premont Elementary School cafeteria as Border Patrol agents brought in more than 20 donated computers and a printer for the students.

The school received the computer equipment by enrolling in an on-line government donation program for education. The non-profit organization allows donations to be made when equipment or supplies becomes available.

PAC officer Fedrick Cordova, APAIC Michael Van Hook, SOS Arnoldo Perez, supervisor Arnoldo Diaz and three National Guard officers were present at the ceremony when they presented the equipment to the school.

"This is the first time for a donation like this to be made in Premont by our station," Cordova said. "We didn't want to throw away the equipment when the students here could use it."
