Students at one Baltimore high school got an early wake-up call Monday and no one was complaining.

A ceremony was held Monday morning at M&T Bank Stadium with all the fanfare that you’d expect after a huge win at home.

“Today feels like a special day, a very fun day. I got to be here repping my school. It’s a good day,” a student said.

It’s a good day because the hands of Digital Harbor High School students were full, but not with the burden of better attendance and grades — they’ve tackled that. They are now being rewarded with 1,400 laptops.

“I’m in disbelief, but I’m so grateful, I’m so humbled and especially blessed to have this opportunity with my students. For the world to see what great things are happening in Baltimore is inspiring for me to continue to do what I’m doing that Digital Harbor High School,” said Principal Taiisha Swinton-Buck.

The laptops come thanks to Comcast as part of The Today Show’s “Once in a Lifetime” series, shining a spotlight on people making a difference in cities hosting the NFL on NBC.

“We were just thrilled to fan the flames of the education that these kids are getting,” said Al Roker.

“We love our day job, but when we can come out and see the joy on the children’s faces, this is just phenomenal,” said Michael Parker, of Comcast.

Swinton-Buck is the Maryland Principal of the Year for 2021. Comcast is giving a total of 3,000 laptops in the city, which is The Today Show’s largest laptop giveaway.
