Thanks to the generosity of Elliott Davis Decosimo in Charleston and Sherwin-Williams #2771 on Long Point Road, the new space for the student lunchroom received a makeover this summer. The former faculty lounge was re-painted, with three off-white walls and one accent wall in blue. The blue wall has been incorporated for a student mural, under the direction of school art teacher, Nancy Amis.
Volunteers for the painting project were supplied by the local office of Elliott Davis Decosimo. The firm provides accounting, tax and consulting services to diverse companies in a wide-range of industries. The eight interns and their group leader, Mandy Osborne, the company’s Recruiting Manager, spent Friday afternoon, July 17, on campus, completing the project in three hours.
According to Ms. Osborne, it is part of their company values to give back to the community. She further explained that the company has 59 interns this summer and that it is part of a structured weekly assignment to volunteer in some aspect of community need. Ms. Osborne stated that already this summer, the interns had been part of projects dealing with hunger, homelessness, and health. The week ending 7/17, all of the interns were focused on some area of giving back to education. In addition to the volunteer hours, the company also held a supply drive to collect much needed classroom supplies for the teachers and students.
We are also deeply grateful to Mathew Drewey and Sherwin-Williams #2771 on Long Point Road in Mt. Pleasant for his thoughtful donations of paint and painting supplies for our Lunchroom Project. Last year Mr. Drewey donated the paint and supplies to re-paint the school’s library. Our most heartfelt thanks for their investment in our school and our students.
