CLEAR CHANNEL AC KOST/Los Angeles will unveil its handiwork at the local elementary school that won its Teacher Lounge Makeover competition, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on MONDAY, OCT. 1st 2007 at 3:30p.
The contest started during Teacher Appreciation Week last MAY, when the station solicited pictures of lounges in need of a makeover. Finalists were posted on www.kost1035.com and after a week of public voting, Camino Nuevo Charter Academy in LOS ANGELES was deemed the most deserving of the makeover. The school is located in one of most underprivileged and densely populated neighborhoods in the country and serves 517 students in grades K-8.
"As a radio station, we are fortunate to have the resources to conduct relevant lifestyle promotions, while helping the community," KOST PD STELLA SCHWARTZ said. "To be able to give these hard working teachers a haven in which to unwind is very fulfilling."
Camino Nuevo Charter Academy 2nd grade teacher MARIA REBECA CORTEZ noted, "The lounge makeover will help us tremendously by creating a visually-pleasing and welcoming working environment that is crucial in helping support our work productivity. As teachers, we make a million important decisions on a daily basis. We need a soothing and comforting lounge that will help us regain our strength and vision during our break times."
