Anyone keeping up with the progress made on NBC’s new show School Pride, and that has a fondness for well designed furniture may have been excited to see Smith System’s furniture being showcased on a recent episode. The school selected for a much needed regroup was Kingston Springs Elementary School. Their Tennessee school was engulfed in flood water in May of this year and suffered building damage as well as the loss of books, technology and school furniture.
Volunteers helped unload a substantial gift of school furniture products from Smith System including their new Flavors School Chairs that offer flexible and ergonomic seating in fantastic colors. Interchange Student Desks were brought in to offer a long-term student workspace solution that allow individual study or can be grouped for cooperative learning activities. Teacher’s eager to return to their curriculum, also received new Planner Teacher Desks and files for classroom storage.
“Despite the devastation of the flood, Kingston Springs Elementary School will come back stronger than ever due to the opportunity presented by ‘School Pride,’” says Molly Risdall Parnell, national sales manager for Smith System. “Teachers and students will get the 21st Century solutions that they deserve, including flexible and collaborative furniture designed to better educational experiences in the long term.”
