The 2015 recipient, Stephanie L. from Santan Elementary School in Arizona, said, “This is almost like a spa. The stress melts away as you walk through the door, it’s that delightful. I am so blow away! I will be spending a lot more time in the lounge because it’s now so intimate and nice.”

California Principal Bonnie T., another winner, was moved to tears after witnessing the Madrid Middle School’s revamped lounge. “I’m happy for the teachers and staff because the area needed serious attention,” she said. “To have a place that is a real break room will make a difference for everyone.”
