HARRISON, TN (WRCB) -

The Ooltewah Harrison Education Foundation also known as "D9," along with UnifiEd is using a grant to supply Harrison Elementary's third graders with iPad's. All 72 students will receive an iPad when they return to school this fall. Harrison Elementary is a Title 1 school with low reading scores. The i Pads will have apps downloaded to improve students' reading and math skills. Hamilton County District 9 Commissioner Chester Bankston was able to pitch in as well, and joined the D9 staff to spring this great surprise to the students at Harrison.
