2017 Georgia United Credit Union School Crashers℠ Recipients


Georgia United Credit Union is excited to announce the recipients of its 4th Annual School Crashers℠ program! Seven schools from across the state are the lucky recipients of a school makeover project from the 330 nominations received. Leading the list of deserving schools is this year’s top recipient, Canby Lane Elementary School of Decatur, nominated by current Assistant Principal Kia Dennis.

Canby Lane Elementary, originally built in 1960, is in need of multiple facility improvements both inside and out. With a high homeless population, our goal this year will be to improve the overall look and feel of the school to help make students experience school and education in its highest form to distinguish it from some of the high poverty areas some of the children are living in every day.

View the slideshow below to see why Canby Elementary was chosen as the leading school!

About the Program

Georgia United’s School Crashers℠ program is about the students and improving their learning environment. It’s a unique program that offers local schools the opportunity to apply for a facility “makeover.” The goal of the program is to bring communities together to support local schools and their school systems. Any accredited K-12 school in Georgia was eligible to submit a photo and a 250-word statement explaining why their school should receive a makeover.
