It was a big secret and no teachers or staff at The Plains Elementary School had any idea what going to happen. So when they walked into their newly renovated teachers lounge Monday, they were delighted and some immediately tried out the new furniture. This all started with an idea from the members of Kappa Delta Pi, the International Honor Society in Education at Ohio University. They wanted to do an “ambush makeover” for a local school. They asked for and received applications and accepted the one from The Plains Elementary School. 25 OU students worked in shifts for 18 hours to design and create this warm, comfortable lounge for teachers and staff. Pictured are Heidi Mullins (advisor for Kappa Delta Pi), Lillie Throckmorton (one of the organization’s member who worked in this project) and Jeanna Sycks (Assistant Principle at The Plains Elementary School).
