Greensboro teens surprised with laptops

Several local businesses helped put the surprise together including Market America. Greensboro Police Chief Brian James was on hand for the surprise.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro teens participating in Cone Health's new Cone Corps Program were surprised with new laptops, with just about a month to go until back-to-school season is here. 

Greensboro Police Chief Brian James was there as 15 teens were given laptops to better prepare them for school work.

The surprise was made possible by Market America. The Triad-based company provided laptops and gift cards to teens participating in the ConeCorps program.

The Cone Corps Program is part of Greensboro Police Department's 500 Jobs Program to get teenagers paid opportunities during the summer.

One Dudley High School senior said she hopes all kids her age will consider participating in this summer program.
