Katy ISDâ€™s Mayde Creek Junior High was one of 20 schools in the Houston area to win the 2010 Gallery Furniture $5,000 Teacherâ€™s Lounge Makeover contest. The school was selected through an online voting contest that took place in fall 2010. Teachers are resting more comfortably with two new couches, new tables and chairs, and a fresh new coat of paint â€“ all hand-picked by Mayde Creek staff. Â â€œMattress Mackâ€ McIngvale is scheduled to visit Mayde Creek JH on May 18.
â€œTeachers were thrilled to learn that our campus won the makeover. The icing on the cake was that they were able to go on a shopping spree to select the furniture that would best fit our needs,â€ says Tory Hill, principal of Mayde Creek JH. â€œThe Mayde Creek Junior High Gators really appreciate Mattress Mackâ€™s generosity.â€
Mayde Creek JH entered the contest in 2010 by writing in 420 words or less why their campus should be selected for a makeover. Patrons were able to vote on their favorite campus entry via the Gallery Furniture Facebook page. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
