Lake Orion Schools Get Classroom Makeovers

Three teachers at Waldon Middle School in Lake Orion received Classroom Makeovers from Mike Macy of the Macy Insurance Agency in Waterford and Oxford. The three teachers all had ideas to benefit the whole school. Christina Buffa wants to upgrade the sound on the cafeteria stage with a new CD player. Jon Gray will install water bottle filler stations on drinking fountains with counters to show how many bottles are being kept out of landfills. Kat Montei wants to create a relaxing "coffee shop" environment in the media center with new furniture, posters and displays.

"One of the really impressive things I noticed about the winners, as well as all of the staff that entered the contest, was the common theme to help the entire school, not just one classroom," Mike said. "When I presented the awards at Waldon Middle School, I was very impressed by the team environment led by the principal, Randy Groya. I look forward to working with the school again, as I am sure we will see these educators again in future Meemic Grant Foundations presentations!"
