When Alexander Smith peered through the plexiglass window of his jail cell into his father’s eyes, he saw the destruction he’d caused. Smith’s addiction to opioids – from prescription pills to heroin – had pained his father for years.

Sprinkle, a UNC junior, grew up without access to high-speed, broadband internet at her father’s house — like 7 percent of the North Carolina population. The majority of the population without internet is in rural counties in the far western or eastern parts of the state.
