Comcast recently awarded Perkerson Elementary a grant of $2,500 to improve their media center. The grant was written by Mrs.Gloria McCullough-Wright, the Media Specialist at Perkerson Elementary. Marcus Bishop and Karen Ross helped to coordinate the entire Comcast “Cares Day” Project. The funds were used to reinvigorate the media center/library under the theme, bringing the outside in. On April 27th, 197 volunteers painted pictures of trees and bushes throughout the media center and hallway. The many volunteers extended their services to help with the school by cleaning the outside grounds and assisting teachers in their classrooms. This was a spectacular event for the Perkerson community, Comcast employees and the 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Great job, Comcast and Perkerson!
