VOTE! For ASU in the Home Depot Retool Your School Competition
By Alexis Butler, student intern
The Home Depot: Retool your School competition is back and Alabama State University has the chance to win a $50,000 campus improvement grant.
According to The Home Depot: Retool Your School initiative, the program strives to give back to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) what they have so generously given to their communities: a strong foundation, renewed purpose, and distinctive character.
Since 2009, the Retool Your School Program has provided more than 2.6 million dollars in campus improvement grants that allow HBCUs to make sustainable improvements to their campuses.
In 2017, ASU won the $50,000 grant and remodeled the student health center to provide a more sustainable space for student’s healthcare. This year, this grant can provide materials for students, improve dormitories and repave parking lots.
Voting is now open and with the help of the ASU community we can improve the university. It's easy. Just visit https://www.retoolyourschool.com/vote/, go to Cluster 1 and cast your vote for ASU. Voting is unlimited and can also be done on Twitter and Instagram by using the #ASU_RYS20 hashtag. Voting ends on Saturday, April 4.
