A national home improvement chain is reaching out to students at a local school to help in their beautification efforts.
The Home Depot has teamed up with the Cherokee County School District's Tippens Education Center to support students and staff through campus improvements and volunteering in classrooms.
The company recently provided gardening supplies to give students the opportunity to participate in a beautification project around the school’s new greenhouse.
“The Home Depot representatives spent a full day with the students and made a huge impact on their lives,” Principal Sheryl Gould said.
As part of the new partnership, representatives from the company will visit the school to teach classes and continue to improve the greenhouse area with additional planting stations and more.
“It is always a pleasure to work alongside companies and individuals who are willing to give of themselves to see others achieve,” Principal Gould said. “Education is not always about curriculum and making the grade, it is sometimes simply about sharing your smile, giving a pat on the back and letting students know that they are worthy of receiving your knowledge and time. And in this field of education, The Home Depot staff has shown they are highly qualified in all areas.”
