Voting for your HBCU to win $50,000 in campus improvement grant will have a long lasting impact on the Tuskegee campus.
Tuskegee University was a 2018 finalist in Home Depot’s campus improvement grant program – Retool Your School. As a result of your efforts Tuskegee was awarded $50,000. Home Depot has a simple mission: give back to our nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) by facilitating updates to campuses. Entering its ninth year, the program has far surpassed its initial goal, awarding $1.8 million through 490 grants. It supports a variety of projects for different schools, each one instilling a sense of ownership and community for those involved.
“Retool Your School” is a catalyst for rallying the spirit of the community within the campus Tuskegee National Alumni Association has provided leadership for competing in the on-line contest for the past eight years.
The 2018 Retool Your School” Project is the design and installation of the student social hub on campus. Below are photos of the project work, cooperation between TNAA members, students, staff and Home Depot volunteers on the Tuskegee campus.
