With a high homeless population attending, our goal this year will be to improve the overall look and feel of the school to help improve all students’ educational experience and distinguish the learning environment as a safe and happy place for students

Georgia United Credit Union is excited to announce the winners of its 4th Annual School Crashers program. This year’s top recipient, Canby Lane Elementary School of Decatur, was nominated by current Assistant Principal Kia Dennis. Seven schools across the state were chosen as the lucky recipients of a school makeover from among the 330 nominations received.

Located at 4150 Green Hawk Drive, Canby Lane was originally built in the 1960s and is in need of multiple facility improvements both inside and out. The School Crashers makeover is scheduled for Friday, July 21 and Saturday, July 22, to complete the project before the new school year in August.

“Canby Lane submitted a compelling entry with multiple areas for improvement. With a high homeless population attending, our goal this year will be to improve the overall look and feel of the school to help improve all students’ educational experience and distinguish the learning environment as a safe and happy place for students,” said Shawn Turpin, Senior Vice President of Sales & Service for Georgia United Credit Union. “Our School Crashers program could make a huge difference for their 740 students.”

Congratulations to all of our 2017 School Crashers recipients!
