Class at Lake City Middle to get $30K makeover

fy14-28-extreme-classroom-makoever-2014-loSusan Silvey, science teacher at Lake City Middle School, submitted the winning proposal for this year’s Extreme Makeover Competition sponsored by Oak Ridge Associated Universities.

Silvey’s wish for a technology-enhanced classroom came true today when ORAU presented Silvey with $30,000 during an assembly at the Anderson County school. Her video showed the impact that increased technology would have not only on the students but the community as a whole.

ORAU President and CEO Andy Page said: “Science and math are two important factors that help form the foundation of innovation ORAU believes through programs like the Extreme Classroom Makeover, we can bring excitement to teachers and students on critical STEM subjects, which in turn, can help strengthen our nation’s future competitiveness.”
