Volunteers from Carolina One Real Estate converged on the school’s library, Monday, August 11th, with a singular mission – a makeover with vibrant colors. It took the energized volunteers less than a day to re-paint the library in rapture blue and overt green. According to Carolina One Real Estate Imogene Thomas, who coordinated the project with her colleagues, “At Carolina One, we like to give back to the community. . . It’s kind of a ‘feel good’ thing.” The firm was also kind enough to donate colorful Carolina One 50th anniversary posters by Tate Nation for the faculty.
In addition, both the paint and the painting supplies were donated by community-spirited Sherwin-Williams stores. Justin Davis, manager of the Sherwin-Williams store in West Ashley donated the paint, while Mathew Drewey, manager of the Sherwin-Williams store on Long Point road in Mt. Pleasant donated the painting supplies.
Librarian Elizabeth Halberstadt had been anxious about being able to have the library refreshed before the students arrived to begin a new year. But with the volunteer work-force and donated supplies, the project was completed right on time.
On behalf of the students and the entire Trident Academy Family, we express our most heart-felt thanks to Carolina One Real Estate and Sherwin Williams for their support of our mission.
