Home Depot Retool Your School Winners Announced
Like ASPiRE TV, The Home Depot recognizes how valuable the nation’s Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are. They have contributed to our country’s growth and have graduated pop culture icons with remarkable personal stories such as Michael Strahan, Common, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Samuel L. Jackson, Taraji P. Henson, Spike Lee and Oprah Winfrey. What could be more worthwhile than helping to preserve, improve and beautify some of America’s most historic campuses and landmarks.
South Carolina State University was one of the $25,000 RYS Grant winners this year and they pulled out all the stops to celebrate their big win! SC State used their grant dollars to create a beautiful student theater with recliners, a popcorn maker and a 75-inch big screen TV! They also gave their student center bowling alley a facelift with a fresh coat of paint and showed some love and floral bling to their outdoor patio.
Home Depot volunteers and students had big fun working on the makeover, which can be seen via the Retool SC State videos on this page. Thanks Home Depot!!!
